Emory is in need of a more inclusive campus culture. In light of recent events, it is imperative that a highly visible organization like SPC makes a strong commitment to support programs that foster a socially-engaged student body. To do this, I want to partner with at least two cultural or diversity programs each semester. Additionally, through the implementation quarterly reports, I hope to increase the accountability and transparency of SPC in the eyes of students.

In my heart, I know I can actualize these visions. I joined SPC in the fall of 2011 and after just one year, I was appointed to co-chair of Homecoming Week 2012. Six months of planning later, we created the largest Homecoming Week this campus has ever seen. My ability to dream big, my proactive nature and my passion are the three things that have and will continue to allow me to succeed as SPC president.

The Emory Wheel was founded in 1919 and is currently the only independent, student-run newspaper of Emory University. The Wheel publishes weekly on Wednesdays during the academic year, except during University holidays and scheduled publication intermissions.

The Wheel is financially and editorially independent from the University. All of its content is generated by the Wheel’s more than 100 student staff members and contributing writers, and its printing costs are covered by profits from self-generated advertising sales.
