Aimee Kristin Davis has been extremely involved on campus since she transferred from Oswego State University (NY) in the spring of her freshman year. The Long Island native quickly jumped into campus life, but remains close to her family and thoroughly enjoys road trips to visit home. She was an RA in Knight and has been RD of Flowers for two years. She has been active in Common Ground and has participated in Freshmen Family Groups (FFG) for three years. She was a participant, family leader, and now is co-coordinator. She has also been in a Depth Group and served as a student leader for a spring break mission trip in 2012 to Jackson, Miss. Davis is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, a leadership honor society, and is a PHA Lil’ Sis. She is an Independent and currently holds the title of badminton doubles intramural champion along with her partner, Ashley Fox. A competitive spirit, she is also the runner up to Meredith Johnson (class of 2013) in the 2013 Water Wars.
Though she stays busy on campus, Aimee finds time to volunteer outside of GC. She attends Dry Run Baptist Church and has helped with their AWANA ministry and VBS. She also volunteers with high school girls at Georgetown Baptist Church (GBC). She has completed internships on campus with Faith Cracraft and Mike Brown. She is a psychology major with a business and French double minor and hopes to go to grad school for student affairs and higher education, perhaps in North Carolina. Her top choice is currently Appalachian State University.
Though not a science student, Davis’ favorite place on campus is the third floor of Asher at sunset. Facing GBC, she loves the “sun going down behind the steeple.” Perhaps her initial attraction to Asher involves her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, physics major Zac Bettersworth. She wanted to give him a shout out saying, “I appreciate him for always being there for me and helping me through everything.”
While Davis’ time at Georgetown is full of good memories, four stood out to her: trips to the Gorge with friends, a night of Blue’s Clues escapades (see spring Georgetonian issues for details), the annual woman’s retreat and Dance Marathon. She has also enjoyed playing pranks on people with Seaton Stiles and having movie nights with friends. Her favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 4:23 “Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Finally, this busy senior advises peers to “make the most out of your Georgetown experience, but don’t get too busy that you lose sight of the experience that you’re having… I would take more time to appreciate the things that I’m doing and the friendships I’m making. Really be in those friendships, instead of being all over the place.” Though she may be critical of her own investments in friendships, Davis is loved by those who know her and always has a smile and kind word for everyone she meets.
