Why did you choose Cornell University and/or Cornell Engineering?
I chose Cornell Engineering because of the vast opportunities it had to offer to develop hands-on skills and become a better engineer. I felt that I could get involved in anything in any field and truly find a way to pursue my interests.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell are the people I’ve met. I’ve never been in a more open-minded or welcoming community and everyone here is always willing to help you achieve your full potential whether it’s friends, classmates or some of the amazing professors that teach here.

How do you get involved outside the classroom?
I’m part of CU GeoData, a project team that collects and analyses climate data around the Cayuga Lake region. I also work as an Academic Excellence Workshop (AEW) facilitator for Math 1920. I’m a member of the Big Red Marching Band where I play clarinet and generally have a good time!
