1:  Who are you?
I'm Emily Borra! I am a proud alumna of UW - Superior (undergraduate) & Indiana University (graduate). I enjoy working with students, playing the French horn, nerding out, and spending time with my husband and dog on long walks.

I coordinate the Bulldog Beginnings program, which includes Bulldog Welcome Week, Welcome Back Week, and First-Year Events. I am also responsible for the assessment of learning outcomes for Kirby's programs.

3:  What's your favorite part of your job?
 I love being able to work on the continuous improvement of programs to ensure students are in an environment that cultivates learning and growth. The work I do in Kirby not only provides the opportunity to work with students but to also be creative!

4:  What's the best meal you've ever had?
For a standard meal: tacos from Carniceria Guanajuato - a grocery store in Indianapolis, IN. For a dessert meal: cheesecake from Carnegie Deli in NYC.

5:  If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Egypt. I have a love of ancient Egyptian history since middle school. I would love to travel and spend exorbitant amounts of time at the historic sites and museums.
