My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Willa Jean Bakery and Café on O'Keefe, and Ba Chi Canteen on Maple!

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

is Pompeii: Life in a Roman Town with Prof. Allison Emmerson. It's an incredibly thought-provoking and fascinating class, covering many aspects of life in Pompeii--the art and architecture, social practices, and even the food! Emmerson really challenges her students to reconsider the common notion that Pompeii is "a city frozen in time." And I can't forget to mention that she's an archaeologist who conducts research in Pompeii every summer. How cool is that?

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Krewe of Bacchus parade during Mardi Gras! Southern Decadence is a close second.

I chose Tulane because...

I knew I could find the perfect balance of academics and social life. Where else in the country can you get in early to medical school one day, and then see Elton John at Jazz fest the next?

I'm passionate about...
