Hear from our students

student Noemi Felipe 26Ox

“In high school, my educational opportunities and resources were limited and the interruption from the pandemic didn’t help. I’m excited to be here at Emory and Oxford College specifically—to take advantage of all that’s available so I can explore different fields and get to know myself better. I’m also excited about being in a more diverse setting—not only to meet new people from different backgrounds, but also to represent my own background. I want to prove to those who told me I couldn’t succeed—because of where I come from—that there are no limits to what I can do when I have access to the right opportunities.”
