Matt: More than a white coat

Medical student Matt Luo loves archery as a way to wind down.

Matt Luo, Medical College of Georgia student and a native of Alpharetta, GA, went to undergrad at NYU. Looking for ways to unwind after busy days, he found a hobby. “Yeah, archery has been a great way for me to unwind during med school. It’s a low-commitment sport, so it’s easy to get a few rounds in between class. Being part of Augusta University, MCG students have access to undergraduate activities and facilities like archery. “We have outdoor practices over by the Christenberry Fieldhouse, and we used to have indoor practices in a warehouse located on the Summerville campus. Since it’s a pretty long-distance sport, you kind of just practice wherever you can find space.”

“It was great to see so many people interested,” Matt says, describing the archer open houses. “I’m glad we go to show it’s not as dangerous as it looks, I promise. Just a quick tip, one whistle blow means to start shooting, so make sure you’re out of the way by then!”
