Why did you choose Emory & Henry College?
I knew I wanted to attend a small school and I loved that there were lots of options to choose from for majors. I also really liked the swim program and what it had to offer. Once I came to visit, I knew it was the school for me. You’ll hear everyone say it, but E&H is definitely a home away from home for all of its students and that was very apparent during my visit.
Extracurricular Interests
I am on the school’s swim team as well as a member of Greek Life. I am a part of Delta Omicron Pi (@deltaomicronpi) social sorority and a sweetheart for Beta Lambda Zeta (@blz_ehc) social fraternity. If you have questions about either of these groups, feel free to reach out to me ( and I can give you information or get you in contact with people who can answer your specific questions!

I also started helping out with EHC-TV last year. It was definitely out of my comfort zone, but I learned so much because of it. Hopefully, we will be able to start production back up again in the Spring! If that is something you think you would be interested in, feel free to reach out to me or Brent Treash (
Favorite Places on Campus
My favorite place on campus is probably the Mawa lounge. It’s the place where I met most of my friends during my freshman year and I made a lot of really fun memories there.
Is there a project you are excited to work on?
I am about to start designing a magazine for my MCOM 404-Advanced Publication & Design class which I am super excited about. I’m expecting to be challenged but I hope to come out a better designer afterward.
What is one thing you want to do while in college?
I hope to achieve all of my goals while completing my degree and having the best college experience I can.
