Quote:
"The rain was raging, the humidity was horrid and my legs were lagging.  The first time I stepped on Emory's campus, it was pouring rain, and I had finished a rigorous weekend of volleyball.  To say that I was drained would be an understatement.  Walking onto Emory's campus and through the tour, I was captivated.  From the beautiful architecture, to the friendly faces, to the incredible classroom space and research opportunities, to the amazing course selection -- I was hooked and I could see myself thriving at Emory.  When I returned in the summer to attend a volleyball camp, I was met again with humidity and exhaustion.  Walking from the dorm, to the gym and to the dining hall was arduous.  As sweat dripped down my face and my legs shook beneath me, I knew Emory was the school for me.  Neither rain, nor humidity nor fatigue of say can stymie me from attending Emory University."
