Fourth Year


I love working with and riding horses, and I ride at several barns in the Athens area.

Why did you choose UGA?

I toured UGA on a whim, initially believing that it wouldn't be the school for me. However, once I saw how supportive, diverse, and organic the College of Engineering was, I instantly knew I had found my niche.

Favorite Memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

One of my best experiences at UGA was completing a project for Manufacturing Design Studio, in which my team and I manufactured a complete chess set via lathing, forging, 3d printing (extrusion and vat photo polymerization), and sand casting. I won't forget all the late nights we spent at the Fabrication Lab!
