Why did you choose Pitt? 

I really liked the city of Pittsburgh and heard that Pitt had a great engineering program and a collaborative environment - now that I'm a student here I can say it's true!

Advice for First-Year Engineering Students

Find something to get involved in on campus that you enjoy - it's a great way to take a break from school work and meet new people

Extracurricular Involvement and Other Campus Jobs

I'm a member of Pitt's Engineers Without Borders exec board and have worked as a First Year Engineering Conference co-chair

Plans for the Future

I hope to graduate with a Materials Science minor as well and work in a sustainability-focused industry
