Why did you choose Pitt? 

I really liked that Pitt offered an Engineering Science degree option making it possible to pursue physics while still gaining the skills of an engineer.

Advice for First-Year Engineering Students

The best thing you can do is meet other First-Year Engineering Students. Creating study groups and surrounding yourself with others working through the same subject matter is what I found helped me the most freshman year.

Extracurricular Involvement and Other Campus Jobs

Outside of the classroom I am involved on the Club Gymnastics Team and Circle K (Kiwanis).

Plans for the Future

I plan on working at Dahlgren Navy Base after graduation for the Department of Defense.
