Favorite Place at Oglethorpe: Stormy Brews. I love coffee so it’s amazing that there is a cute coffee shop in the campus center. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and study – plus, they have great coffee!

Favorite Place in ATL: Westside Provisions District. There are a lot of cute restaurants and shops in this area so it’s a really fun place to visit!

Why do you love OU?: I love that Oglethorpe cares about its students holistically. OU is committed to helping its students thrive in every area of their lives, not just in academics. The support and resources offered on campus are incredible.

What advice do you have to students?: Your college experience is what you make it. Don’t be afraid to seek out and take advantage of opportunities that challenge you. Try new things even if you aren’t good at them. Intentionally get to know people who have different beliefs/perspectives. You’ll be surprised by how much growth can come from stepping out of your comfort zone.
