you chose Pitt:
me coming to Pitt was both a lifelong dream and natural progression. I was first introduced to Pitt by my father
an Arts and Science alumni. I always
like to say that his panther pride wore off on me while I was growing up. From attending football with my season ticket
since the age of one to touring the nationality rooms every Christmas. I quickly fell in love with the campus. When it came time for me to make my college
decision, I was set on engineering and an urban campus. While touring Pitt I learned of the undecided
policy for freshman engineers which was a unique feature and ultimately
solidified my decision to come to Pitt.
In the end location and flexibly of the engineering program was why I
committed to Pitt.
to a First Year Engineering Student:
advice to future first year engineering students is to take full advantage of
all the resources for engineering students from your first day on campus. These include your advisors and the
department heads that are more than willing to speak with you. Do not be afraid to initiate the first
contact. Also, to come in with an open
mind about your major. Even if you have
decided on your major never stop exploring leads and opportunities for a minor
or certificate. Make sure to attend big
seminar and use it as a tool to discover your passion. Lastly get involved with professional and
demographic engineering clubs, they are a wonderful way to gain invaluable
friendships and leadership positions.
involvement and Future Goals:
campus aside from being an Engineering Ambassador I am heavily committed to
mentorship, leadership, outreach, and volunteering. Most of these commitments are in conjunction
with my membership in Pitt Society of Women Engineers. By holding officers’ positions, I am able to
plan outreach events, mentor underclassmen, and volunteer throughout the
semesters. I also have and will be
attending the national societal conventions held in various cities around the
country. I am also a member of National
Residence Hall Honorary Jonas Salk Chapter whose total members are capped at 1%
of the University’s population. Through
this organization I participate in various service projects on and off
campus. Outside of engineering I am a
member of Pitt Yoga and I enjoy visiting many of the museums around Pittsburgh
(for free of course with my Pitt card).
ahead for my career in electrical engineering I plan to take advantage of the
co-op program here at Pitt. While
completing an internship on the side to diversify my work experience. I also am looking forward to the possibly of
traveling for my job in the future.
