What is your favorite Emory tradition?

Songfest! It is a great way to kick off the school year and welcome the incoming class.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Go to concerts, parks, and museums and eat good food. One time I was going to a Fletcher concert, and my uber driver was an actor from the vampire diaries.

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

Walking around campus listening to music, doing homework in Atwood, writing, reading, or having a great conversation.

What has been your most impactful class?

I have two classes that have defined my time at Emory thus far. The first is the creative writing introduction to poetry class I took with Professor Marshall during my first semester. I was exposed to a lot of different styles and techniques and it was the first time I got to collaborate in a room full of poetry writers. The second class was Orgo which actually convinced me to become a chemistry major. The way that the chemistry department here teaches its foundational courses with a basis in molecular orbital theory is unique from most other schools and provides a more profound understanding of the reactions we study.
