Academic Area of Study:
Undergraduate Institution: Georgia College and State University
One of the many benefits of pursuing a PhD at Emory University is the close relationship with faculty. The relatively small program allows students to work closely with the world class faculty. I came to the program straight from college and I did not have much prior research experience, but the faculty here at Emory have helped me tremendously to get on the right track. I also love the location and the environment of Emory. It is located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood - Decatur, but it is also close to many attractions of Atlanta. I am looking forward to the upcoming years at Emory.
