Feeling like a freshman

Third year back on campus and I’m greeted by…no one? As I walked through Emory’s campus during my first week of classes, I recognized almost nobody.

Is this what it feels like to be a junior? Watching freshmen hesitantly mill about between classes searching for White Hall and the Rich Memorial Building, while sophomores, with their heads held high, assert their no-longer-newbie statuses.

Then again, who wouldn’t feel like a freshman walking into the new Barnes and Noble bookstore decked out with an Apple room and a Starbucks? And they take your Dooley Dollars!

Or how about that new yogurt shop, Yogli Mogli, right across the street from the bookstore? Their cake batter yogurt will definitely keep me coming back.

And now that the bookstore’s moved out of the DUC, there’s more space for Eagle Fly By and additional seating for dining, studying, lounging, whatever your preference.

Over at Cox Hall, there’s a new stir fry area called the Mein Bowl, and there’s also Dooley’s Burgers and Wings, baked not fried. Either way, their sweet potato fries taste just as good.

And who wouldn't want to be a freshman this year living in the new freshman dorms with their grand common study areas and their stone fireplace?

I guess there are some things that can tie a junior and a freshman together, but it still feels awfully good to say, "that wasn't there last year."
