Emory & Henry has equipped me with the skills to think critically and to identify the ways in which I can contribute best to my academic communities. Through pursuing both a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.A. in Sociology, my toolbox of theory, methods, and general problem-solving were expanded by the faculty who work diligently to share such knowledge. These programs have prepared me to continue asking questions and have provided me with the skills to answer them as well. After graduating in May, I will be moving to Nashville, Tennessee, to continue my education. I have accepted an offer from Vanderbilt University to pursue my PhD in Sociology, where I would like to continue research in medical sociology.
