Why did you choose to come to Penn State? I chose to come to Penn State because I had 5 cousins who came here and absolutely loved it. I saw the memories they made and realized that I would be missing out if I did not come here.

What has been your best memory as an engineering student? My favorite memory as an engineering student was rushing my sorority (the engineering sorority). I love knowing girls in my classes and always having people to study with or to destress with. Every semester we get a new class of girls to mentor and that is always exciting for me!

What advice would you give a first-year engineer? Get involved as much as you can, both in and out of the College of Engineering. There are so many opportunites and you only have 4 (or 5) years to take advantage of them!

What do you plan to do after graduation? To be determined!

What has been your best experience outside of engineering at Penn State? My best experience outside of engineering at Penn State has been getting involved in THON.Being involved in THON has been so eye-opening and shows what a group of students have the power to do.
