  • Close-ups
  • “ Softball, well, they called it that because they thought the ball was softer, so it's for girls, you know? It's not really like that, though. I used to play co-ed in high school. And I'd like to play with guys again. Some of them can get really tough.” Belle Thomas, Cartersville, Georgia
  • “ I like trying to be a different person. I want to walk in somebody else’s shoes.” Catherine Cela, Savannah, Georgia View slide
  • “ I think chocolate fixes everything. And I like money. Money to buy stuff.” Dahlia Wright, Kingston, Jamaica View slide
  • “ Dragons to me are guardians of knowledge. I also like horses because I see them as symbolic of freedom. And I love Scotland because that's where a good portion of my ancestors came from.” Helen Likins, Jacksonville, Florida
  • “ Japan is open to ideas that we’re not yet. Americans, like a lot of cultures, are not prepared for the emergence of a third gender. We have the spirit of freedom of expression, but we’re in need of a renewal.” Ryan Smallwood, Griffin, Georgia
  • “ I just put together all the things I care about and threw them all in here.” Amber Campbell, Jacksonville, Georgia
  • “ I think political science is a way for a person to look at the world through the eyes of a realist.” Marta Kurshumova, Burgas, Bulgaria
  • “ I love words. Hence the French and English double major. My dad used to quiz us on vocabulary at the dinner table, throwing out words like “paronomasia” and “avuncular.” French was just another set of words—really pretty, really nasal words.” Betsy Herlong, Memphis, Tennessee
  • “ I took art from my house to put it in our room. My mom realized when she saw it on the wall in a photo. She said ‘Thanks for stripping down my house!’” Hannah Doan, Loganville, Georgia & Katie Dunn, Stockbridge, Georgia
  • “ I’m a very good listener. That’s why old people like me. I have patience, I sit there with a listening face until they’re done talking.” Charisma Enam, Dhaka, Bangladesh
  • “ That drawing’s actually very patriotic. Red, blue and white, see? I made it last semester.” Ryan Smallwood, Griffin, Georgia
  • “ I like to know the people around me. And I like them to know me. Before I was editor of The Word, I didn’t want to get into journalism. I do now.” Dana Amihere, Ocala, Florida
  • “ I’m the worst English major out there. I don’t even write.” Annabel Fowler, Macon, Georgia
  • “ I like Tinker Bell’s attitude. She is very different from what she looks like.” De-Andreth Isaacs, Mandeville, Jamaica
  • “ Laughter is the best medicine.” Jessica Albrecht, Hamburg, Germany
  • “ My next room is going to look totally different. I’ll try something new every year.” Jessica Thompson, Elizabeth, New Jersey
  • “ I’ve an obsession with shoes. I don’t know, is that a weird thing? I have, like, one pair of flats.” Yessica Hernandez, Guanajuato, Mexico
  • “ We made our door look like spring: fresh and colorful.” Kendal Binion, Newnan, Georgia & Stephanie Jamison, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania
  • “ I’ve been playing softball for thirteen years. My teammates say I’m a silent leader. It’s kind of annoying.” Lindsey Ambegia, Anchorage, Alaska
  • “ I have lots of monkey-shaped things. Have you noticed?” Kelly Coquerel, Lawrenceville, Georgia
  • “ Can I say just one word about our room? It’s fusion .” Priyata Thapa, Kathmandu, Nepal
  • “ I don’t like to talk much about myself. But tell me about you.” Silvia Gheorghita, Bucharest, Romania
  • Yes… We’re real.
