Emily Rounds

Data Collector

Emily Rounds is a Data Collector for the College Crisis Initiative. She is a senior Hispanic Studies major at Davidson College who intends to pursue a career in the field of Higher Education after graduation. Emily’s interest in Higher Education started through her volunteer work at the Davidson Office of Admission as a Tour Guide and Tour Guide Mentor, while Dr. Marsicano’s “Critical Issues in Higher Education” seminar further sparked her passion for this field. She has conducted research studying the population of students in Higher Education in the field of Psychology, examining the effects of Instagram fitness content on Davidson women’s psychological factors, and this research, “The Impact of Fitspiration Content on Body Satisfaction and Negative Mood,” was recently published in the Psychology of Popular Media journal. Emily is passionate about working in team- and community-oriented environments, and she strives to apply this mindset both in and outside of the classroom. At Davidson, Emily is the President of Rusk Eating House, a Hispanic Studies Research Assistant, a Spanish Apprentice Teacher, and a Spanish Writing Tutor. This summer, she is working as a Summer Ambassador for the Davidson Office of Admission and is the College Doulos Intern at Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton, New Jersey. In her free time, Emily loves to hike, run, eat delicious food with friends, and bake. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the College Crisis Initiative team this summer and academic year!
