When you arrived at Purdue, what surprised you the most?
Something that really surprised me when I came to Purdue was how excited people were about their classes and what they were studying. It seemed like everyone had a lot of internal motivation to work hard and succeed in school, which I thought that was something really cool to see right when I got here.
What have you found at Purdue that you are most passionate about?
Since coming to Purdue I have joined the engineering sorority on campus, which has been a great way to meet a lot of amazing girls who are interested in the same things that I am. I absolutely love all the friends and experiences I have gained through my sorority!
Why did you decide to study engineering, and how did you choose your discipline?
I really liked math and science all throughout school, and I also liked playing with snap circuits as a kid. These interests lead me to pursue a degree in electrical engineering.
What do you want to do in the future with your engineering degree? I have an internship this summer at NSWC Crane in Crane, IN, and I will be in the Failure and Material Analysis Branch, Flight Systems Division. This experience will (hopefully) help me develop skills to get a full time job in the future. My long term goal is to get a job at a navy base after graduation.
What is your favorite thing about Purdue?
There is always something going on at Purdue, and everyone is always so active! I love all the opportunities there are here to stay busy and try new things!
