What Made You Decide to Attend UMD?
I wanted to have a large school atmosphere, but also have a small school atmosphere within my major. I also wanted to attend a school that is into sports so that I could experience things outside of academics.

Best Experience with a Class or Project
My best experience in class was taking ENCE489G abroad in Greece over spring break. It was so much fun to experience engineering in a different country.

Favorite Class
ENCE215: Engineering for Sustainability Involvements/Extracurricular Activities AΩΕ & ASCE

Favorite On-Campus Event
My favorite on-campus event is going to basketball games and seeing the support puppies that are brought on campus.

Research/Study Abroad Experience
I took ENCE489G in Greece and it was so much fun! The last day we went on a three island cruise and it was so beautiful.

Cool Engineering Experience
Designing a truss for one of my classes!
