Fun Fact

I recently learned to sail!

Why did you choose UGA?

New York doesn't have any kind of big state school that everyone rallies behind and I really wanted to go somewhere that had a lot of school pride with strong academics. My brother came to UGA and graduated in 2015, but I refused to come here because I didn't want to go the same place he went...then I visted enough times and realized I loved Athens and UGA was the perfect balance of school and social life.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer

Studying in the courtyard! I love getting to study outside when the weather's nice and it's super convenient to be close to all my classes!
