Student Name: Karissa Kang
Major(s): Classics & English
Bio: Karissa is a third-year studying Classics & English. Ancient Greek was the very first class that Karissa attended at Emory, and, since then, she has rarely gone a day without it. Karissa is grateful that her Greek classes at Emory have allowed her to read great works, such as Plato’s Symposium, Homer’s Iliad, and Aeschylus’ Agamemnon. She is even more grateful that her Greek classes have allowed her to meet great people, from characters like Achilles and Socrates to her brilliant professors and peers.
