Ben A.

Oxford Ambassador at Emory University


Class of 2023

Hometown: Newton, MA

Major: Psychology and Linguistics

Minor: Spanish

What has been your most impactful class?

My Adolescent Psychology class has been the most impactful for me because as part of the Experiential component of the course I was assisting in a local eighth grade English class in Covington, Georgia. I was able to apply what I had learned in the classroom and see it happen in the real world, which is something I had never experienced before at that capacity.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is the Coke toast because not only do I love Coca Cola but I also enjoy the community aspect of it because everyone (faculty, staff, students, parents, etc.) are gathered to commemorate the beginning and end of your Emory journey.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Go to the Ponce City Market. It reminds me of Fanueil Hall back home in Boston, but there are tons more shops and especially good food.

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

Relaxing in my dorm room, or in a hammock outside! If I don't have a book with me, I have my camera.

I'm passionate about...
