"I went through an emotionally exhausting recruiting process starting my freshman year of high school. I visited universities throughout the country, from University of Rhode Island to Northwestern to Harvard, and everywhere in between, failing to find a school where I felt wanted and where I would be excited to call home.  I was beginning to think that the dream school I had in my head didn't exist.  That was until I visited my 50th university -- Emory.  As soon as I stepped on campus, I was immediately drawn to the energetic and vibrant atmosphere, the gorgeous campus and top-notch athletic facilities.  As we drove off the campus following my visit, I instantly wanted to go back, and that's when I knew I had found my second home."
