What is your favorite Emory tradition?

Gate Crossing & Coke Toast! During Orientation Week, all the first-year students will cross through the iconic Haygood-Hopkins Gate to mark the start of their Emory journey before participating in the Coke Toast. First-years then toast with Coca-Cola glasses to a wonderful time at Emory, and they do this again prior to commencement to celebrate the success of their experience.

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

Walking in Lullwater or playing tennis on the courts near the WoodPEC! Lullwater is a park/preserve right here on campus! My friends and I enjoy taking walks and studying on the grass. As a player on Club Tennis, I frequent the courts for practice or just for fun.

What has been your most impactful class?

FILM 101 with Professor Ben Kruger-Robbins! This is the prerequisite class that starts you off in the Film & Media major (my major!) and welcomes you to the world of film. Not only did this course prepare me for the future knowledge needed within the major, but it also edified my interest in film. After taking the course I fully committed to the major alongside a BBA.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Visiting the BeltLine & Ponce City Market! It's a great place to find greenery and grab a great meal with my friends.
