December 2018: Sociology major plans for graduate school

Chelsey Adams

What’s your major? I'm a sociology major.

Where are you from? I'm from Tacoma, Washington.

What activities have you been involved with during college?  I've been involved in the sociology club, the nonprofit organization GeorgiaShift, and the Friends Committee on National Legislation. I'm also working on an original research project that I presented alongside Dr. McClure at the 2018 Annual Southern Sociological Society Meeting.

What was your favorite class/professor and why? My favorite class was Theories of Racial Stratification and my favorite professor is Dr. Stephanie McClure. No other professor - or class - has had such a profound impact on the way that I think about the world and about myself. Honorable mention goes to Dr. Koch, who was kind and patient enough to put up with me at my most hyperactive.

How did your college experience help you grow or change your perspective? I'm a lot more sure of myself after my college experience. The absolute, nonstop chaos that is undergrad is something that I didn't know that I could handle, but I did. I learned more effective ways to collaborate and I made great friends that I'm going to miss so, so much. I ended up having a good time. The whole thing makes me confident that I can handle new, more challenging experiences.

What are your plans after graduation? I plan to attend grad school and plow on straight through to get my Ph.D. in sociology, while doing some community organizing whenever I can.

"I've been amped up and ready to graduate for what feels like forever, but now that I'm at the end of the road I realize that I'm going to miss this place, and I'm really going to miss the people."
