Emily Back

Emily Back '14

Sociology major Emily Back ’14 admits that she didn’t get too involved during her freshman year. She focused on her academics. But, by the time the year wrapped up, she and her roommate decided to put themselves out there and attended a few student organization meetings.

Today, she is on the Orientation Team as a Student Orientation Coordinator, is a Student Ambassador for the Office of Freshman Admissions, serves as President of the Student Activities Board, and was a Great Beginnings Ambassador.

She came to Fisher undeclared, and says the College’s Core Curriculum helped lead her to where she is today by making her more well-rounded.

She has traveled to Texas and beyond as a member of the campus community to attend different conferences, and spent time in London for an internship.

She says, “No matter what your major is, Fisher provides resources including internships and caring professors who want you to succeed. They get you where you need to be.”
