Scholar Spotlight: Kartik Patel
Spotlight Scholar

Kartik Patel is a Senior at USA and is the recipient of the Armbrecht-Briskman Southerners Scholarship, a Freshman Admission Scholarship and USA Freshman Leadership Scholarship. When asked why he loves the University of South Alabama, Kartik said: "I love the University of South Alabama because of the various opportunities I have had since starting my undergraduate career. We have many clubs and organizations that suit so many different interests. I also love that at South, students have their own voice; if we want to see something change or have a new idea, the University is always open to hearing us and helping work towards implementing that change. Go Jags!"
