Campus Cutie: Abbey Shockley C'18

Have you ever been walking down University Avenue when suddenly, a red 1991 Isuzu Trooper passes you with the windows rolled down blasting “Reaper” by Sia? Or, have you heard the pop of a Diet Coke opening at the beginning of one of your classes? Perhaps you tried studying in the conference room of the Academic Technology Center, only to realize that it was reserved for a study session that will last long into the next morning. If you have encountered any of these scenarios, you most likely have experienced a routine occurrence in the day (or night) of the life of Abbey Shockley, C’18. Between the Student Government Association, the Women’s Golf Team, and Theta Pi Sorority, Shockley is a true Sewanee staple. This Texas gal loves Sewanee almost as much as she loves queso.
