What Made You Decide to Attend UMD?
I chose to attend the University of Maryland because I fell in love with the campus and opportunities. Although I was not sure what major I wanted to pursue when I entered college, UMD had very good academics, so I knew that my education would be in the right hands. Additionally, it has the perfect location due to its proximity to Washington D.C., Baltimore, and my home!
Best Experience with a Class or Project
The best experience with a project has been in ENME 371, Product Engineering and Manufacturing. Group projects are not the easiest to handle because everyone has different skill sets and may not pull their weight of the project. However, I was lucky to be placed in a group where everyone worked well to complete their parts and help each other out with sections of each report. This class provided the hands-on experience that I was hoping for when I chose to study mechanical engineering.
ENME351: Electronics and Instrumentation II
Favorite Class Out of Major
AASP100: Introduction to African American Studies
Student Organizations/Extracurricular Activities
I am involved in Silver Wings, Society of Women Engineers, Federal Work Study, and some intramural sports. I love the opportunity that Maryland offers a huge variety of clubs and organizations that you can be a part of.
Favorite On-Campus Event
My favorite on-campus event are the soccer games! I love standing in the student section and cheering on the team.
Favorite Research or Study Abroad Experiences
Unfortunately, I have not been involved in any research or study abroad opportunities.
Cool Engineering Experience
One engineering experience to note is the career fairs. It is an amazing opportunity to network with numerous individuals representing some of the top companies in the country. Even if you do not know what company or industry you would like to work for, you can walk around talking to anyone or everyone to learn more.
