Why did you choose Cornell Engineering?
I chose Cornell Engineering for the people and for all of the amazing opportunities it gives. Cornell Engineering has so many great things like project teams and amazing faculty that help students grow in and outside of the classroom and gives all-encompassing view of engineering. The college also fosters a unique support system with the way it’s run that really builds students up and helps them thrive in challenging environments.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell Engineering is the constant support you receive from so many different places. It really helps you get the most out of your classes and helps you connect with other students even more.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
I am involved with Cornell University Sustainable Design, a sustainability focused project team on campus and I am the president of Alpha Omega Epsilon, Cornell’s only professional engineering sorority. I also work as a tutor on campus and participate as an Engineering Ambassador.
