Living in Texas and not being able to travel, I have missed out on many things such as the California weather, the New York diversity, etc. The Emory campus is a perfect combination of all. The amazing diversity of metropolitan Atlanta gives one's entire experience at Emory a feel of living within all cultures. Moreover, Atlanta has an ideal weather that I long to experience.
As a second-year student's sister, I get to know about the "behind-the-scenes" at Emory. While going in to college, Yaasha was debating her major and questioning her interests and future. Because of the Emory's outstanding GER program, she got the opportunity to explore, discover and expand her interest in Business. Likewise, I am still undecided. Although I have a general interest in Law, I hope the GER program will help me explore my possibilities and discover my interests.
The stress from high school has always been an obstacle between my love to travel and sight-seeing. The Emory Experience Shuttle offers students who enjoy new experiences and are open-minded to try new things with opportunities to see the unique attractions of Atlanta. The shuttle is a way to get away from the academic stress every weekend and truly experience Atlanta.
Although for now, I am still unsure of where my life is headed, I know for a fact Emory's valuable resources will help me shape my life, discover my true self and provide me with the ultimate college experience where I can learn and grow.
