What is your favorite Emory tradition?

The Coke Toast! Former Coca-Cola President Robert Woodruff went to Emory, and the university has continued to have strong ties with Coca-Cola over the years. The Coke Toast bookends your time at Emory, as it is done during orientation and then again at graduation. I think this is a fun tradition and it really brings the whole campus together to celebrate beginnings and endings while enjoying a refreshing Coke (or other Coca-Cola product if Coke isn't your thing).

What has been your most impactful class?

Intro. to Microeconomics with Dr. Blake has really changed the way that I have thought about myself as a consumer in our rapidly changing economy. It also has made me consider whether I'd be interested in some sort of economics or business major, which is definitely not something that I thought I would be interested in coming into college.

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

I really like hanging out with people in a variety of spots on campus. Generally you'll find me in the lobby of our residence hall or in the Student Center.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

I haven't spent a ton of time in Atlanta due to COVID-19, but I really like the Emory Village area right around the Atlanta campus. There's cool places to walk around and have a picnic, in addition to a fun photo spot at the iconic Emory sign that you see in all of the Emory promotional material.
