What you love about UGA Engineering: 

I love UGA Engineering because it has a really great support network of students, teachers and peers to help you tackle your engineering degree. There's a community within the engineers at UGA that you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. People here are passionate about Georgia, passionate about the college of engineering, and so willing to help each other. I can say first hand UGA is really an amazing place to earn an engineering degree.

Favorite spot in Athens:  

Dudley Park (Right Behind Mama's Boy...which is my second favorite spot)

Advice to yourself freshman self: 

Become friends with the upperclassmen in your major. They can really provide invaluable info on what classes to take, what jobs people get with you're major, and most of all help you through tough classes. Also, eat at The Niche, it's by far the best dining hall.
