What student organizations and activities are you involved in?
I am involved in Society of Environmental Systems Engineers! Previously being the treasurer my junior year, I have continued into the president position for my senior year. This society helps connect fellow ENVSE students to each other and to faculty members. We also have meetings with industry and government speakers to give students an idea of what they could do with their degree!
Why did you decide to attend Penn State?
After touring the campus, I fell in love with Penn State. The campus has a fun life to it – there is always something fun to do!
What is one piece of advice you would give to prospective students?
If you are thinking about joining EMS, sign up for TEEMS! Going to this orientation gave me the close friends I have today. I’m even roommates now with my original roommate from TEEMS!
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in college so far?
You are never alone! If you are having a hard time with classes or adjusting to college life in general, odds are that someone is experiencing this too! Don’t be afraid to speak with your classmates and EMS faculty.
What opportunities has Penn State provided for you so far?
Penn State introduced me to The Green Program, where I studied Water Resource Management in Cusco, Peru! Having this on my resume has caught the eye of employers when it came to internships and full-time job opportunities!
