Engineering Student Ambassador
Peachtree City, Georgia
I am on the UGA club triathlon team and in the ballroom performance group.
Why did you choose UGA?
I made the mistake of overlooking UGA during college admissions, and came to UGA with plans to transfer out before I had the chance to begin. But in August, any plans to transfer immediately became void and quickly forgotten. I felt accepted and integrated with my peers, my teachers, and my place at this school. I decided to stay at UGA because it quickly became my home.
Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?
I was lucky enough to find a group of friends to help revitalize the UGA student chapter of AIChE, a professional chemical engineering society. In our first active semester, we were given a participation award at the engineering banquet to recognize our members' hard work during the college's E-week competition. It was unexpected, but a great moment to share with my friends who helped build the organization with me.
