Describe yourself in 140 characters or less. Play hard, work harder. And enjoy the simple things, like iced coffee, kittens, and Lord of the Rings.

Favorite place on campus: The tables behind Dobbs that face the soccer field. You haven't lived until you've experienced a Dobbs sunset. 

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#OMQ- OMQ really means OMG but everyone at my high school replaced the "G" with a "Q" and now I do too. I don't really even know why, but it's super catchy and pretty much sums up my response to everything from the lemon squares at the DUC to that awesome feeling you get when someone adds you on Facebook.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why? I would follow Benjamin Franklin. I think he'd be really witty and sarcastic, plus he'd always be tweeting stuff like "BRB. Gotta go discover lightning. #TheGrind"

Why Emory: I honestly don't know what exactly it was that attracted me to Emory, but now that I'm here I can't imagine myself anywhere else.

Fun Fact about yourself? I hate animals and Usher is my life.

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus?

The question is really what am I NOT a part of on campus. I am a Junior Legislator of the 58th College Council. I'm an intern in the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services. A manager at the SAAC and also currently a shelver at Club Woody (Woodruff Library). I was the Artistic Director of AHANA Theater. I'm a member of Issues Troupe and the Emory Sex Squad. I was a Crossroads Facilitator for the 2012-2013 year. I'm a Black Student Alliance member, as well as a NAACP member. I will be a Resident Advisor in the fall. I'm also heavily involved with theater on campus. Eh, I do a lot of things, basically...

 Describe yourself in 140 characters or less. I'm the baddest, the best you ever saw.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why? #TroizelTroubles - that should be pretty self-explanatory

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?
Langston Hughes. I can only imagine how sap and poetic his tweets would be. "I'se still climbin', and life for me ain't no crystal stair #StartedFromTheBottom"

Favorite place on campus?

7th floor Stacks or Cox Computer Lab. I rarely go, but I feel so vibeful (yes, vibeful) there when I do.

Why Emory?

This the LONGEST story, but I fell in love with everything that Emory is in 10th grade and it's been my dream school ever since. Now that I'm here, it feels good to be home.

Fun Fact about yourself?

Everyone tells me that I walk around, giving people death stares. That's just how my face works. Oh yeah, and I am the God of Twerk.

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus? I work at the rock wall in the WoodPEC (open Monday-Friday 4pm-8pm and Saturdays 12pm-2pm) and am part of the pre-nursing club. I didn't want to overextend myself freshman year! This upcoming school year I plan on joining SAPA and the Feminists in Action club.

Describe yourself in 140 characters or less. "A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order." -Jean Luc Godard

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why? #bepresent My best friend and I have been going to yoga religiously this summer and our yoga instructor gives us new mantras every week that can be applied to different areas of our lives. She is always telling us to be present with our practice and this is something I have applied to my daily life. Instead of going through the motions of your daily activities, I believe it's important to be present, live in the now, and appreciate everyday and not just experience life, but truly live it.

Favorite place on campus? I'm addicted to Starbucks, so it's my favorite place (and most visited) on campus. When the weather is warm I enjoy doing homework on McDonough or the quad with friends. When it's not so nice, the reading room in the Oxford Road Building is a great (and quiet) place to get work done.

Why Emory? I visited Emory my junior year of high school and fell in love- the campus is gorgeous, the academics are incredible, and the people are fantastic. After one visit I was sold.

Fun Fact about yourself? I'm adopted...but many people don't believe me because I look too much like my parents! I am also a French film fanatic.

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus? I’m on the Varsity Soccer team, and I’m a co-head moderator for Wonderful Wednesday next year. I’m president of Once in a Lifetime Club, and I’m in Alpha Delta Pi.

Describe yourself in 140 characters or less. I do what I love, and I love what I do.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why? #excellenceisahabit – It’s from my favorite quote which is how I try to live my life. (Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit- Aristotle.) Nothing comes easy, and to be truly successful, you need to be excellent. And Excellence is something that is worked for, not stumbled upon.

Favorite place on campus? My favorite place is either the soccer field or Asbury Circle, the location of my two favorite things about Emory: the soccer team and Wonderful Wednesday.

Why Emory? I was recruited for the soccer team, and when I came to visit, which was my first time on campus despite being from Atlanta, I fell in love. The atmosphere, the team, the academics, and the location created a place that I knew I had to be a part of.

Fun Fact about yourself? One time I rescued a baby opossum off the road. He was the cutest and creepiest little creature I’d ever seen.

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus? I'm participating in two dance clubs (swing and salsa) and I may pick up a club sport this upcoming semester. I am in a multicultural fraternity Xi Kappa and I'm very involved in the offices of campus life and multicultural programs and services.

Describe yourself in 140 characters or less. I get very passionate about a couple of things and to those things I devote an incredible amount of energy.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why? #LiveForTheBid I love playing ultimate frisbee. For those unfamiliar with the terminology, a bid is a catch made while laying out or diving. It truly represents a dedication to making that catch because you are putting your body on the line. You have to go all out with everything you do in life. Live for the opportunities to stretch yourself.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why? Philip Schuyler: he was one of the first American diplomats of Turkmenistan. He travelled all over Central Asia and Russia. I would have loved to hear updates about his travels and what he experienced, as I am also interested in that area of the world.

Favorite place on campus? I love the grass over near the B-School. It is some of the softest grass on campus and it has a great view of the stars at night.

Why Emory? I was really looking forward to leaving home and going somewhere new. When I first came to Emory I fell in love with the architecture, the landscape, and the community. I stayed for the wonderful academics and opportunities.

Fun Fact about yourself? I am a speed reader. I can talk faster than an auctioneer and I usually can finish a 300+ page book in a day or two (three if I'm busy).

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus?

I'm the Secretary for the Emory Polo Club. Yes, the kind with horses. It's basically hockey on horseback and the adrenaline rush is unmatched so far. I'm also involved with Ad Hoc Productions. I acted in HAIR last spring and directed Spring Awakening last fall. Theatre people are the greatest on earth and the people I've had the honor of meeting through Ad hoc are particularly spectacular.

Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

Southern Belle who's always up for an adventure. Red lipstick and heels are my not so guilty pleasure.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#Londonlife I'm studying abroad in London this fall and it's kinda taking over life. It doesn't help I'm working with a bunch of Brits this summer. Their accents are to die for.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Marilyn Monroe: she had the ear of one of the most powerful men of her time. In spite of being typecast as the dumb blonde, she was well spoken and frank and people adored her for it.

Favorite place on campus?

The Upper Patio of the Carlos Museum. On a nice day, it's the perfect place to grab lunch and people watch.

Why Emory?

Out of all the places I visited, it was the only one that felt like home. When I started actively comparing other schools to Emory, I knew it was time to stop looking.

Fun Fact about yourself?

I had a Deb Ball. My grandmother was a southern lady and insisted I did the whole cotillion/coming out tradition. As much as I poke fun at the white dress and dance cards, I picked up several handy skills that I'm pretty proud of (Ask me how to write a formal invitation).

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus?

On campus, I'm the features editor for The Emory Wheel. As part of that, I edit the Wheel's special sections, like The Best of Emory. I'm also on the rush committee for Kappa Sigma Fraternity. I'm a fairly musical person and I like to dabble in a variety of instruments. I have my electric guitar, mandolin and French horn with me here at school. Oh, and I'm a pilot.

Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

I like to keep it classy. My glasses are from Brooks Brothers and my typewriter is an Underwood. My friends call me Clark Kent. Did I mention that I’m a pilot? 

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#fratlyf. It's my sarcastic response to Greek life and my life in general. It's hard to take either seriously and #fratlyf is an easy way to make light of ridiculous situations.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Hunter S. Thompson. As a journalist, he's my stylistic role model. Despite the wild exterior, he was very sharp and produced great work. But the truth is that the man lived an absurd lifestyle and reading his tweets would be hilarious.

Favorite place on campus?

Monday and Thursday nights on the fifth floor of the DUC, in the offices of The Emory Wheel. Production nights are an experience unlike any other and the collective effort that goes into putting out that newspaper is impressive.

Why Emory?

It sounds cheesy to say, but it just felt right. Sure, it's prestigious and has great academics, but so did the other schools I was seriously considering. I went to Emory's accepted students day after I had been to every other school's and, ultimately, Emory had what the other schools were missing. I'd describe it as a good sense of self and a charmingly quirky personality that I really appreciate. Like I said, it just felt right.

Fun Fact about yourself?

Well, I've been hinting at it since my intro – I'm a pilot. My dad is also a pilot (he does aviation law), so I spent much of my childhood in and around planes. I started lessons when I turned 15 and got my license shortly after I graduated high school. I can fly a Cessna 152 and 172.

Atticus Haygood, of course. See if he could pull off a "New South" sermon in 140 characters or less.

Favorite place on campus?

Asbury Circle during Wonderful Wednesdays

Why Emory?

The weather, the academics, the people, the city, the campus, the history. The future for Emory University and Emory Alumni is always bright!

Fun Fact about yourself?

Working with an awesome team to organize Founders Day Celebration was the highlight of my senior year. Emory has a wonderful history that the whole campus had a chance to explore and appreciate!

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus?

On campus I am heavily involved with the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services, as a student intern, a Crossroads retreat facilitator, and a member of the Unity Month Planning Committee. I am also involved with Emory Model United Nations, serving this year as their Communications Chair, as well as attending a conference at Georgetown, staffing a middle school conference with Georgia Tech MUN, the Ron Clark Academy and Global Classrooms, and staffing our first ever collegiate conference, MUNE I!! Next year, I have the honor of serving as the Secretary-General of MUNE II! I am also involved with the Alliance for Sexual Assault Prevention (ASAP) and am a trained Sexual Assault Peer Advocate (SAPA). In my free time I also enjoy volunteering with Atlanta Homeless Outreach and the on campus organization HOAP (Homeless Outreach and Awareness Project), as well as taking dance classes.

Emory freshman. Political Science. Dance. Baker. Volunteer. Internet enthusiast. #MUNlife

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#strugglebus This hashtag describes my day-to-day efforts to be the best I can be. Being at Emory, I feel a responsibility to do my best in academics and extracurricular activities. Most of the time being an Emory student means I have a lot on my plate. So, #strugglebus is just a reminder to keep going!

Favorite place on campus?

I really enjoy spending time at the Carlos Museum! History and archaeology are loves of mine that I regret not being able to study more while at Emory, so I instead try to spend plenty of time wandering through our amazing collections. Café Antico, the restaurant upstairs, also has fantastic food and is a great place to bring visitors!

Why Emory?

Emory is me, plain and simple. It was always on my radar as a top choice school, having had many family members attend for undergrad, graduate school and seminary. After visiting campus I realized I hadn’t felt as at home at any school other than Emory. The values of the university, especially the emphasis on integrating different interests, the arts and diversity really clicked with me. Additionally, being originally from the Atlanta area, coming to school here was an easy transition. I can definitely say, after spending a year here, that Emory was without a doubt the right choice for me.

Fun Fact about yourself?

I make shortbread from scratch? I guess I just love to bake.

Cat lover, lit nerd, and small-town Southern girl with a major coffee addiction.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#awkward – I always know how to get into the most awkward situations, no matter where I may be.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Caravaggio. He was an amazing artist, but mostly crazy. I’m pretty sure the Pope issued a death warrant for him.

Favorite place on campus?

Carlos Museum/the Quad – seriously, Carlos is the coolest. Getting to go in and see all the mummies for free? Not to mention all of the awesome visiting exhibits. The Quad is always beautiful.

Why Emory?

It’s a great school in a fantastic city. It’s in-state, but not close enough to where I would feel like I’m not going away for college.

Fun Fact about yourself?

I adore cheesy B-rate horror movies, like the kind you often find playing on SyFy. Sharktopus? Seen it. Ice Spiders? Seen it. I know they’re terrible, but I can’t stop. I’ve also got a strange affinity for zombie films.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#nofilter– because I will almost always tell you exactly how I feel without sugarcoating it. I am a very honest person. I also cannot keep a secret at all. Lastly it relates to instagram and I love instagram! Follow me @calllllley!

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

I would follow Coco Chanel. I’m reading her biography right now and I’d love to see a twitter from the strong-willed, determined woman who revolutionized the way we dress today.

Favorite place on campus?

Tunnels under the library.

Why Emory?

It’s a diverse place with intelligent people from all over the world. There is a nice balance between studying and also having a good time, whether it’s on campus or out in Atlanta. I personally picked it for the urban location and DIII running opportunity. I have made some of the best friends of my life here, so that’s been a highlight. The weather doesn’t hurt either!

Fun Fact about yourself?

In the 5th grade, we had a punk rock Blink-182 cover band called The Wax Dolls. We wore safety pins and frequented Hot Topic. I was the lead singer and my alter ego was named “Suger.”

#Birdmanhandrub … I’m always scheming.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Malcolm X. because he was one of the few historical figures that isn’t depicted as perfect. He matured in front of a nation in such a short period of time. He is a leader that made mistakes, but learned from them.

Favorite place on campus?

Turman Hall Room 404 … this is the room that I lived in Freshman year. Too many crazy things have happened in there, plus it shares Atlanta’s area code. To the current residents of Turman 404: I’m coming back to get my room.

Why Emory?

Emory is prestigious, highly-ranked, doctors blah blah blah … it is the weirdest school in Georgia. It’s in Atlanta, but metaphorically it isn’t. I found this intriguing. I also believe that Emory has so much to offer. There are so many people to connect with here and that gives the unlimited potential to anyone that decides to go here.

Fun Fact about yourself?

Nah. I've already told you too much.

What kinds of things are you involved with on campus?

RHA is slowly taking over my life - I'm VP for Advocacy for the 2013-14 year. I also spend a lot of time talking about the DUC, not because I love the food, but because I am the DUC's rep for FACE. I also have a few other clubs here and there.

Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

Twitterholic. Foodie. I'd give up my left arm before I'd give up my iPhone. Oh, and my friends love this: I hate chocolate.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

My friends back in Chicago created "#brycerobertsonproblems", and it followed me to Emory. It'll pop up on Twitter every so often. Watch for it.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Ayn Rand. I don't take all her ideology to heart, but with all of the childish arguing inside Congress, I feel like it would be really humorous to see many tweets with the hashtag "#really"? Her take on things could be sobering, too.

Favorite place on campus?

There's a bench deep inside Lullwater that is a veritable dead zone for people and cell signal. If I ever want to escape everything, that's where I go. And no, I'm not going to "check-in" from the bench.

Why Emory?

I was at that point in junior year when you're between still not totally caring about the college decision and freakishly obsessing over it. My parents asked me if there were any other colleges I wanted to visit, so I took to the Businessweek rankings to find the best b-schools that I hadn't already said "hell no" to. Emory was high up on the list, and I knew some people who had gone to grad school there. I figured that Atlanta couldn't be a bad mini-vacation, so off to Emory we went. I fell in love with the campus on the first day I was there, and the rest is history.

Fun Fact about yourself?

I don't sleep much, so on colder nights, you'll probably find me reading in the Hamilton lobby, but on warmer nights, walks around campus are pretty much a given.

Creator of all things that don’t suck. The Internet raised me, and pop culture saved my life.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#thankyoubasedgod – If this means anything to you, it needs no explanation. If it doesn’t, no explanation will ever make sense.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Jesus of Nazareth. It’d clear a lot of things up, plus it’d just be cool to get his perspective on things. Like, a live tweet of the crucifixion would be really eye-opening. “Romans killing me for being too real. #sorrynotsorry” Or his first tweet after being resurrected: “Wait, what?” Who wouldn’t follow that?

Favorite place on campus?

There’s this 4’x4’ section in the corner of the Clairmont pool that changed my life.

Why Emory?

When I was in eighth grade, I told my social studies teacher than I wanted to be a doctor. He told me that I should go to a school named Emory because they’re known for producing some of the best and most talented doctors in the world. I really, really liked the name Emory, so I decided I wanted to go. Plus it’s really close to my hometown. Like, ridiculously close. I once woke up to use the bathroom in my apartment and walked into my grandparents’ bathroom by mistake. The next closest school is probably my high school. You get the point. Of course, when I grew up and it was time to actually choose a college, nothing even came close to Emory. Campus is beautiful, the classes are involving, I love the students, the faculty, and the area. The culture surrounding Emory (Dooley, athletics, traditions, etc.) is great, and it really does feel like a big, welcoming family. It’s been my #1 choice since eighth grade, and I couldn’t see myself anywhere else.

Fun Fact about yourself?

Everyone calls me Sketch. I started this website named “Brotips” and Mark Cuban invested in it and people tell me it’s a big deal. I’m also one half of the hip-hop duo known as Nicki Minaj.

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why?

#lol – because I am constantly involved in awkward, embarrassing, or random situations! And I absolutely love to laugh, dance, sing, and make goofy jokes, so I am constantly “lolling” – whether it is sarcastic or real.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

I would follow Marie Antoinette. I find her history fascinating and I would like to hear her perspective on the French economy and government, especially since she has always been painted in a negative light and I wonder if she was really so naïve. I also think her musings about fashion and society would be humorous…

Favorite place on campus?

It may sound cliché, but I love Asbury Circle! There are always things going on at the center of campus, and it is the best place to see people, listen to music, grab food, and have a good time.

Why Emory?

Emory is full of diversity and opportunities. It is where you can make friends who come from all over the world, dabble in a broad range of extracurricular activities and classes, and really explore your interests and passions while finding new ones.

So why Emory?

Because you can discover you.

Fun Fact about yourself?

Stephen enjoys long walks on the beach, bow ties, and scintillating conversation, and knows exactly where in the world Carmen Sandiego is. 

If you were to use a hashtag to describe your life, what would it be and why? 

#awkward because my life is just one awkward moment tumbling into the next. If you meet me in person you’ll quickly find that I enjoy using way too many puns, and that they often end up falling well short of my intention, making things awkward. I also have a propensity for spontaneously bursting into song/rap at the most inopportune times, and generally embarrassing my friends in public.

If you could follow any historical figure on Twitter, who would it be and why?

Walter Cronkite. His role as arguably THE face of American news for so many years means he would have countless stories to tell. I am also interested to see what he would think about modern journalism, as well as the rise of social media.

Favorite place on campus: Lullwater park. It’s definitely a hidden gem, especially in the spring and fall.

Why Emory?

Emory to me feels like home. It’s a place where everyone can be themselves, and realize that there are countless other views and interests just waiting to be discover. Emory is also a place to find your passion.

Fun Fact about yourself: I own 15 bow ties.
