Get to Know Us: Emalee Brown

Hi friends!

As a new writer here at The Odyssey, I wanted to make my first appearance by introducing myself and my life to my readers, so here it goes...

I'm Emalee, and I am a college freshman studying Public Relations at the prettiest little university in south Georgia. I am a member of the newest pledge class of the Kappa Mu chapter of Phi Mu here at Georgia Southern, and I have already realized in such a short amount of time just how blessed I am to be apart of such an incredible organization.

I have always heard that God brings about things in our lives at just the right moments, and I can't believe that to be any more true. Because of Phi Mu I am inspired everyday to be the very best version of myself and to always see the very best in others. I am constantly reminded why I fell in love with Phi Mu the first day of rush and why I will continue to love it forever.

Family is another huge part of my life, and because of them I believe that I completely personify the definition of a "home body." Thank goodness I am only an hour away from my sweet home, Savannah, because I'm just not sure what I'd do if day trips home weren't an option.

I'm a firm believer that hometown best friends are of the upmost importance to having a happy and fulfilled life. Although we are separated among 7 different cities, 3 different states, & 8 different schools, I know that we can always count on each other, and for that I am very grateful.

I feel as though growing up in a city as beautiful as Savannah is almost unfair. I have always been in love with the city, and now that I am off at school I have begun to appreciate it even more. If you haven't been able to experience a summer night's sunset at AJ's Dockside, I seriously suggest you consider placing it at the top of you bucket list.

Along with my writing for The Odyssey, I also spend my time running my own blog ( and tumblr ( I absolutely love the idea of inspiring others through my words and photographs -- my ultimate dream would be to eventually pursue this in my career.

Together, all of these little things contribute to the person I am today. I am so very thankful for all that I have been blessed with, and I am so very excited for what the future holds for me.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
