Why did you choose to come to Penn State? I chose Penn State because the engineering program is great, of course, but also because I loved all the school spirit. During campus visits the enthusiasm was contagious!

What has been your best memory as an engineering student? My best memory as an engineering student at Penn State was my study abroad experience. I spent three months in China working and learning about the impact of culture on Engineering.

What advice would you give a first-year engineer? 

What do you plan to do after graduation? I plan to go into industry for a few years and then join the Peace Corps to use my knowledge of engineering to better the world! :)

What has been your best experience outside of engineering at Penn State?
