Why did you choose UGA? I chose UGA because I felt like I had the ability to really explore a bunch of different avenues of myself over the course of college. Obviously I knew the education here would be great, but the breadth of activities and organizations you can be a part of at UGA really made it an easy choice. We had also just come off of a great year football wise, and four years later I can say I really made a great choice.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer? My favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer was probably cramming for a Calc 3 final in Driftmier. My friends and I knew each other pretty well, and we got to a point around 2 AM where everything we said made us burst out laughing. None of the stuff we said was even that funny, but I think the friendship in addition to the deleriousness of frying our brains made everything hilarious. Either that or having back and forth conversations with Dr. Thompson in front of 150 people during his Strengths of Materials class.
