Favorite lunch spot in Athens

The Niche Dining Commons. It's part of the meal plan, but it is like it's own restaurant! They have the best calzones, gelato, and sweet potato fries!

Favorite place on campus

Herty Fountain. When I went to orientation before my freshman year, the Orientation Leaders took us out to Herty fountain around 10pm. We all circled around the fountain, and it was the first time that it really hit me that I was in COLLEGE! I’ll always treasure that moment.

Your advice for prospective students on how to choose a college

College is what you make of it. You’re given four years to learn, to adventure, and to grow. Wherever you choose to go to college, you will find a way to love it. Get involved: join a club, play an intramural sport, etc. If you find something that you love doing at college, anywhere that you decide to go will be awesome.

Share some wisdom you've learned about how to be "awesome" in college

Be vulnerable. Get out of your comfort zone. Say hi to that person sitting next to you in class. Say yes to opportunities that are presented to you. Stay positive, and always remember that you are special and that you are unique!
