Why you choose Cornell Engineering?
Cornell allows me to take an assortment of classes outside of my major and college, giving me an opportunity to explore. I have taken or am planning on taking courses covering culinary arts, world politics, and nuclear engineering.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
I appreciate the sense of community that is built between the students of the college.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
I am a member of the mix sub team of the Cornell Concrete Canoe project team. As a part of that sub team, I work on creating and testing new concrete mixes for use on the final boat used in competition.
