What you love about UGA Engineering: I love that you can get a "small" school feel on a large campus. It's nice to know several students in all of your classes. The school is large enough to have all the resources you need as a student, but small enough to be able to get hands on experience in the school and help make it your own or make an impact. Plus the professors, clubs, and other engineering opportunities are very accessible, allowing students ample opportunities to get involved.

Favorite spots in Athens: Cali N' Titos, Two Story Coffeehouse, and The Tree Room

Advice to yourself as a freshman: Find a role in the college and make it your own. Get plugged in and form relationships with your professors. Try and find some projects outside of your classwork to work on as well.
