Jacarmen James


    Jacarmen James is a rising senior at Georgia Southern University who believes that doing things for others will help him prosper in the long run.
    James is a biology major from Sandersville, Ga. He says that although GSU was not his first choice in colleges, he has enjoyed his time here.
    “I like the fact that [there is] always something to do, and there are plenty of opportunities to be active. You have a place on the campus if you choose to find it,” he said.
    James is involved in many on-campus organizations, including Phi Sigma Pi, the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers and the Student African American Brotherhood. He also has been a part of the Southern Pride Marching Band and has served as a community leader.
    James is on the track to become a pharmacist and says that before he graduates, he hopes to have some type of lasting impact, even if it affects just one person.
    "I hope to impact people to a point where it builds them to become even better than what I was when I was here — even if it’s one individual that goes on to be great and accomplish great things. I’m here for people,” he said.
    James says that if he could give any advice to a group of people, especially incoming freshmen, he would tell them to make sure they spend their time wisely.
    “Do things with a purpose. Make sure you’re doing things for the right reason,” he said.
