Why you choose Cornell Engineering?
I knew I wanted to go to a school in a more rural setting, but still have some conveniences that are found in a city. Ithaca is a fantastic place to explore, with a large amount of parks all over the city. The TCAT bus also runs throughout campus, so getting places is relatively easy. Cornell Engineering also has a great variety of interesting classes as well, so I was confident Cornell was the right choice.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
I really like how collaborative everything is as well as the opportunities that are present at the College. Not only can you learn the theory for a lot of subjects, you can also apply them to team-based projects, whether it be through project teams or research or something else entirely.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
I’m part of a Chinese Yoyo performance group called the Cornell Pro-Yos. Our team holds several performances a year and it’s a great way for me to unwind after classes and meet with friends. I’m also part of the Engineering Ambassadors, where I’m able to give tours to prospective students and share what I think makes Cornell Engineering so great. I also was part of a project team called Cornell Cup Robotics, which allowed me to work on interdisciplinary projects with a large group of students.

Why you choose Cornell Engineering?
I chose Cornell because of their amazing programs with a focus on hands on learning experiences and the College’s culture which focuses on collaboration and exploring things out of your comfort zone.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell Engineering is the core curriculum that encourages you to explore different engineering disciplines before settling on one and the focus on hands on learning through project teams and labs.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
Outside of the classroom, one of the best ways to get involved is to join different clubs or project teams. There you will not only learn new things and get to use the things you learned in the classroom in a practical environment, but you will also meet a lot of new people.

Why you choose Cornell Engineering?
I chose to attend Cornell University for its connections within the technology industry, the diverse, welcoming student body, and most importantly for its knockout campus. In my time here, I have found Cornell to have brilliant, enthusiastic professors who help motivate me to become a great student. I have also found lifelong friends. Cornell has such a unique student body that no matter your interests, you will feel like you have a place. The surrounding nature in Ithaca and on Cornell’s campus itself is also breathtaking. Only at Cornell is your morning walk to class over a gorgeous waterfall and gorge extending through the rest of campus.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell Engineering is, although classes can be quite large, especially your first year, you are far from being just a number.  No matter the size of my classes, I could always find help from professors, TA’s, or fellow students. Cornell Engineering prioritizes every student’s success to make them feel comfortable and engaged.

What do you do outside of the classroom?
Outside the classroom I am involved in many other clubs on campus including Cornellians for Israel, Cornell Elderly Partnership, Hillel, and Association of Computer Science Undergraduates.  I am also a part of Greek Life and hold a board position in my fraternity.
