Why you chose Pitt:
The University of Pittsburgh and Swanson School of Engineering has a proud tradition of excellence and provides me with every resource that I could need. The Pitt Engineering community within the greater university atmosphere provides a strong support system that is invested in my success as much as I am.

Advice to a First Year Engineering Student:
Enjoy the program and make new friends. There will be another 500 or so freshman engineers starting their journeys like you are, and sharing the experience with them in the classroom and in extracurricular activities will make it all the more enjoyable.

Blue and Gold Society Ambassador, VP of Pitt Engineering and Business Administration, Panther Hurling Club member, Pitt ChemE-Car team. My future goals at Pitt are to participate in an engineering co-op or internship program and to continue representing my university at competitions and conferences. Beyond school, I plan on working as an electrical engineer at a professional level.
