A Community Rich in Diversity and Life Experience
Part of my role in admissions is to work with first-generation college students. I’d like to share the stories of two College of Engineering professionals who were also first-generation college students:
Susan Daniel is the daughter of an immigrant and was a first-generation college student. She is now a professor in the Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Read Professor Daniel’s story here: https://www.engineering.cornell.edu/about/branding-microsite/independent-thinkers/faculty-stories/susan-daniel
Lauren Stulgis was a first-generation, low income college student who found a faculty member to serve as her mentor throughout college. Now Lauren is the Swanson Director of Student Project Teams at Cornell Engineering. Read about Lauren here: https://www.engineering.cornell.edu/spotlights/lauren-stulgis-swanson-director-student-project-teams
Students at Cornell Engineering will meet Professor Daniel, Lauren, and other staff and faculty who have interesting backgrounds and stories that may interest you.
