What Made You Decide to Attend UMD?
The sheer amount of diversity of both people and opportunities is what drew me into UMD. You can meet so many different kinds of people and personalities here and there is always something fun or interesting to do on this campus!

Best Experience with a Class or Project
My best experience with a project was my ENES100 class. It was the first hands-on engineering experience I got to have in college and it was cool to be able to work in a team to create a car from scratch.

Favorite Class In Major
ENES100: Introduction to Engineering Design

Favorite Class Out of Major
ARCH272: Sustainability at College Park

Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities
WMUC College Radio
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

Favorite On-Campus Event
Next Now Fest or Art Attack! I love watching live music shows whenever we can get artists to come perform on campus.

Favorite Research or Study Abroad Experiences
 I'm looking into studying abroad in Iceland over spring break!

Cool Engineering Experience
Learning how to use power tools like drills, band saws, belt sanders, and more during my senior year of high school engineering capstone class was super cool! We got to use these tools to create our very own prototype to solve a common societal problem.
