Hi everybody! My name is Tori Avis and I’m a sophomore in the Elliott School of International Affairs majoring in International Affairs with a concentration in Conflict Resolution (and maybe a minor in Africana Studies? or Communications? I’ll let ya know). I’m from a small coastal town on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, but I absolutely love DC!
My favorite part about living in the city is that there is always something to do! With the opportunity to speed walk to the monuments (I hate running), to explore Eastern Market (try the locally-made apple cider in the fall), or to finish homework at a café in Adams Morgan (shoutout to Tryst), my GW experience has felt more complete because I’ve ventured outside my comfort zone, and if you need an adventure buddy, I’m always down!
So, if you need an adventure buddy, want to vent, or just feel like chatting, feel free to reach out to me! I can’t wait to meet you all!
Preferred Advising Topics: creating a work/life balance, studying abroad, transitioning to life in the city
