What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is the Coke Toast!

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class has been Sexualities Studies, which is a course in the Women's, Gender, and Sexualities Studies domain. Going into this class I had no Idea what to expect, but I came out of it with a host of theoretical frameworks which I am constantly applying to the world around me, and using to question what I think I know/what I am taught to accept as fact. Overall, this class really changed me as a thinker and student and, most importantly, emboldened me and gave me the analytical tools to scrutinize my life for fulfillment.
