Fun Fact

I unfortunately grew up a University of Florida and Auburn University fan before I came to UGA.

Why did you choose UGA?

I came to UGA because I wanted to attend a university that would be able to offer a respected engineering degree but not one that forced an un-enjoyable social environment onto the students. After touring both UGA and Georgia Tech on the same day, I quickly realized that only UGA would be able to offer me this in Georgia.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer

My favorite memory of engineering at UGA is studying for strengths of materials and dynamics, surprisingly. Even though I did enjoy these classes, the studying itself is not what made this enjoyable. What made this a great memory was that I was studying with a friend I had known since high school and a friend I just met that semester. After we were studying for a while we started to get burned out and just talked about life for a while. This reassured me that I made the right choice by coming to UGA because this was the exact environment I wanted in college.
