Territory: First-year students from East Central and South Florida, Southeast Georgia including Savannah, Southwest Georgia, Texas, Northeast U.S. (PA, NJ, NY, etc.); Adult Degree Program students, Non-Degree Seeking and Certificate Program students

Hometown: Marietta, GA

Education: University of Georgia

Major: East Asian Studies — Korean Focus

Favorite Place in ATL: Buford Highway! It’s home to some of my favorite Asian restaurants, karaoke bars, H-Mart, and tons of other cool shops! There’s always something new to do in that area.

Why do you love OU?: I love the close-knit community and flexibility that Oglethorpe offers. For students that want to attend a smaller university with more one-on-one opportunities, I believe Oglethorpe is one of the best at providing a very individualized approach.

What advice do you have to students?: You can’t pour from an empty cup. Student life can be very exciting when you’re surrounded by a wealth of opportunities and activities. However, it’s very easy to overextend yourself by filling up your schedule. Your time-management skills will become very important; especially when balancing course loads, work, clubs, and your social-life. Remember to leave time to tend to yourself and your studies!
