Transcript of Lobby Show

•Major: American History
•Activities: Varsity baseball (go Tigers!), Kappa Alpha order, Big People for Little People
•Quotation: "Giving tours is something that I truly enjoy (even in sweltering, 95-degree heat)," Joe says, "because I want parents and prospective students to leave with an image of what Sewanee is all about: community."
•Perfect Sewanee day: A walk through Abbo’s Alley and lunch downtown at Julia’s (Joe recommends the chicken pesto Panini). Joe Reilly, Alpharetta, Ga., Class of 2011 Jonathan Brenes Salazar, Monteverde, Costa Rica, Class of 2013 •Intended Majors: Environmental Policy, International Global Relations
•Activities: Spanish tutor, University Choir member, Assistant Proctor, Environmental Resident, President of HOLA (Hispanic Organization for Latino Awareness), barista at Stirling’s.
•Favorite Sewanee saying: “Fog happens.”

•Quotation: “I’m going to school here.”—Kelly, on her first visit to Sewanee, at age 12 (seriously).
•Find Kelly: On her turquoise cruiser, Betty; getting coffee at Stirling’s
•Just a few of her favorite Sewanee things: touring prospective students and families around the Domain, the turkey melt and fried zucchini at Shenanigan’s, hikes on the Perimeter Trail. Welcome visitors! A glance at what's happening on campus this summer... •Major: Anthropology

•Carrie studied elder care in Visakhapatnam, India thanks to a Biehl Internship.
•Carrie’s perfect Sewanee day is a busy one, including: a morning run to Morgans’ steep, an engaging classroom experience, lunch on the patio of McClurg (she recommends the Vegan Chili in the sourdough bread bowl), a stroll across campus to chat with friends, rounded out by sunset at Green’s View.
•Quotation: “I love Sewanee because you can do anything you are passionate about here… Once you get here, it's like someone grabs you by the shoulders and says, 'Use this place to discover, to learn, and to become more of yourself.' And they mean it.” Carrie Ryan
Pasadena, Ca.
