Leanne J.

Ambassador at Emory University

Class of 2022

Hometown: Dothan, AL

Major: Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

go to Ponce City Market with my friends. We love walking around Ponce on a sunny afternoon and getting acai bowls for brunch.

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class was my history freshman seminar on the history of U.S. doctors and doctoring. While I am a STEM major, this history class allowed me to improve upon my analytical and writing skills, as well as gain a deeper appreciation of how the past has shaped our future.

On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

at Kaldi's Coffee Shop in the new Emory Student Center. I go there often and order a green tea latte and work on homework or just organize my schedule for the week.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is Songfest, which is a competition amongst all of the first-year residential halls. Each hall recreates the choreography and lyrics to popular songs, and whichever hall had the best performance wins SongFest. I absolutely love this Emory tradition because it promotes hall spirit, community-bonding among your hall mates, and who knows? You could also meet your best friend there, like I did.
