Fun Fact

I lived in Tokyo for three weeks.

Why did you choose UGA? 

UGA was a perfect match for my personality and learning style. I like to utilize my resources and be close with my professors and that is something UGA specializes in. Not to mention, UGA students tend to be personable and social. I have fallen in love with UGA and the city of Athens in my three years of attending the College of Engineering.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

My favorite memory only lasted a couple of hours but it has to be attending the UGA vs Bama SEC Championship football game last year in Mercedes Benz. It was my first time in the Benz stadium and was awesome to see us whoop up on the Tide for about three and a half quarters before one of the best nights in my life became one of the worst after a heartbreaking lose wtih a massive lead. Also one of my favorite memories is getting acquanted wtih all of the cool equipment in the Fabrication Workshop and actually being able to use them for my classes.
