Meet Charlotte

Major: mechanical engineering
Hometown: South Setauket, NY

Why did you choose Cornell and/or Cornell Engineering?
I was excited by the many opportunities for engineering experiences outside of the classroom. Cornell has so many project teams, research groups, and student organizations that allow you to explore engineering in a hands-on way, and members of these groups that I talked to when I was deciding where to go seemed genuinely passionate about what they were doing.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell and/or Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell Engineering has to be the variety of classes offered. I’ve gotten to take so many interesting courses that cover topics such as tissue engineering methods, wind turbine mechanics, and thermodynamics of combustion engines.

How did you get involved outside the classroom?
I do undergraduate research in tissue engineering and bioreactor design with the Bonassar Group. I’m currently serving as the Director of Student Services for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and the Co-Chair for Engineering Peer Advising. I’m also in a social sorority and do intramural sports!
