Like most PhD students, I try to have a life outside of grad school and the Georgia Tech bubble. These are some of my non-academic exploits.
I have been a runner since joining the track team back in seventh grade. I went on to run varsity cross-country and track for my undergraduate school, Saint Joseph's University. Despite no longer having an official team, I am still running on my own and occasionally with the Runnin' Wreck club at Georgia Tech.
St. Joe's Basketball
It did not take long for me to get to campus and start cheering "The Hawk Will Never Die!", named by Sports Illustrated as "the most defiant cheer in college sports." I was lucky to arrive during SJU's perfect 27-0 regular season in 2003-04. After 4 years of going to games and playing drums in the Hawk Band, I'm going to be hooked for life.
Going to Games
I have decided to start keeping track of all sports games that I go to. Most of what I have will tend to be Georgia Tech football games, along with baseball games and SJU basketball games when I can.
