Most Memorable SPIA Class Moment?

Spending the Spring Semester of my Junior year in the SPIA at Oxford program in England. It led to not only the most spectacular learning environment I ever had, but also allowed me to grow as a person and spend legitimate time on my own learning about myself.

My Top Three Career Tips
  1. Try out everything. Join a club, get a job, play sports… Do everything because it is the only time in your life where you will have so many thing convenient to you.
  2. Mentor – I can’t tell you how important it was to me to receive advice from professors, juniors and seniors when I was a freshman. I only wish I did more to seek it out.
  3. Go to every sporting event and buy as many shirts as you can. I can’t tell you how long my UGA wardrobe will last. 4 years and still going strong!!
Favorite Athens Haunt & Getaway

Sanford Stadium on Saturday’s in the Fall – obvious reasons Pauley’s – It was a terrific meeting place for myself and several of my friends. Centrally located and with terrific food, Pauley’s was a great place to hang out and get to know folks. Not to mention they always had the Braves on.
