Emory University’s mission is to create, preserve, teach and apply knowledge in the service of humanity. As students, it’s easy to get consumed by the day-to-day minutiae of our lives; between recruiting and classwork, we’re often busier than we want to be. At the end of the day, however, it’s this mission of “knowledge in the service of humanity” that binds us all together. It is firmly embedded in the fabric of our experience at Goizueta.

Now that I’m finished with Full-Time recruiting, I’ll be focusing most of my energy on my coursework during my last semester at Goizueta.
