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

Outside on the quad! On sunny and warm days, I am usually there every free minute I have that is not spent in class. It's such a great open area to run into friends and relax right in the middle of campus.

What has been your most impactful class?

The most impactful class I have taken at Emory was a class called The Psychology of Politics, cross-listed between the psychology and political science departments. As a psychology major who (maybe) wishes she had majored in political science, this class perfectly incorporated two of the things I am the most interested, and I really look at the way we run elections differently now. I highly recommend this class!

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Going to Krog Street market! It's like a small food court/shopping area, and it's in such a great neighborhood to walk around. Right next to the beltline, it's my favorite place to go on sunny weekends for some lunch and a nice walk.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

I absolutely love Wonderful Wednesday. I purposefully plan my schedule each semester with time in the middle of the day to stop by WW, because it's such a fun way to see what every club is up to. I also often am running one of the tables whether to register people to vote or advertise an upcoming event. It's so unique to Emory and has really added to my college experience!
