Why did you choose UGA? I chose UGA because of the awesome balance we have as an institution between learning personal skills and excelling in academics. It was a tough desicion since both of my parents went to Tech but looking back now I could not imagine being anywhere else and take a ton of pride being a student here.

Favorite Memory as a Bulldog Engineer? Probably this semester when Dr. Kim was giving his clay micas lecture on alumina and silica sheets he warned us that his pronounciation of “sheets” would make us laugh. As soon as he started, he had everyone snickering (including himself).
