Fun Fact

I have a 5 year old goldfish name Rufus. 

Why did you choose UGA?

I chose UGA because this has been my dream school from since I was a little kid. Also, I am not a fan of out-of-state tuition. I love the great campus atmosphere and the strong education provided here at UGA. My older brother graduated as a UGA engineer and some of my best friends have graduated as UGA engineers, so I figured I would see what all the hype was about. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer

A valuable memory I have is pulling an all-nighter in order to study for one of Dr. Wagner's tests. I did terrible on the test because I couldn't think straight due to being exhausted. However, I learned that 2 or 3 hours of sleep will help get your mind right for any test.
