Schedule a meeting with me!

Hello! My name is Sam Davis. I am the Director for New Student Advising and Adjunct Professor for the Religion and Philosophy Department at Emory & Henry College.

I graduated from Elon University in Elon, NC in 2014 with a B.A. in Religious Studies and a minor in Non-Violence Studies, after which I worked as a writing tutor for ESL students at East Tennessee State University. I then pursued an M.A. in Religious Studies along with a graduate certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, graduating in 2020. While there, I worked as a student advisor and success coach for 1st-Generation and non-traditional students.

I can help with:

Advising students who are undecided in their major (pre-major), as well as students hoping to major in Equine Studies.

I help my students choose, change, and explore majors and career interests, select and register in appropriate courses that mirror either their graduation plan or their academic interests, get connected with academic support services such as Student Success Coaching, Academic Support & Disability Services, and Counseling Services, explore alternative academic opportunities including internships, study abroad, and service learning, and participate in career exploration through connecting students with a faculty advisor in their major to assist in exploring undergraduate research opportunities and networking within their field of study.
