Do You Want to Know A Secret? No, Ambassador Abby Rohde ’18 is not named after a Beatles album (but she still has a really cool name—even though Rohde rhymes with Cody). Feet firmly planted Here, There, and Everywhere in Montgomery, her hometown, Abby’s never had a Ticket to Ride on an airplane Across the Universe, but she sure does Twist and Shout Eight Days a Week on campus. A Day In the Life of Abby usually includes time to Come Together with her sisters in Chi Omega—she’s passionate about her sorority and about bettering the lives of others. A business administration major and psychology minor, she also devotes time to deciding if We Can Work It Out in meetings of the Business Club and the Accounting Club, and learning What Goes On in service as an Orientation Leader and a Student Recruiter. In her Yesterdays she was a member of the volleyball team and the Student Athletic Advisory Committee. With A Little Help From her Friends, this Woman juggles all these obligations—good practice, because It Won’t Be Long before she’s in law school. Abby’s a simple girl who likes to Slow Down for movie nights with friends, Get Back to the Huntingdon Coffee House, walk the Long and Winding Road by the Riverfront, and Let It Be in the open air at the Shakespeare Festival park. Although she Should Have Known Better, she once tubed down the Guadalupe River in a thunderstorm. She feels Glad All Over when she can paint and draw. Abby’s favorite faculty member is Professor James DeLoach, about whom she says, “His sarcasm and dry humor never fail to brighten even the gloomiest of days.” Her three words for Huntingdon, “inspiring, intimate, inviting,” sum up what she values: “My favorite things about Huntingdon are its charm, its approachable faculty and staff, and how easy it is to get involved.” A good person to the core, Abby Rohde. Ain’t She Sweet? To Know Her Is to Love Her.
