Written by    Jul 29, 2016

I am a chemical engineering major. Despite the popularity of my major, it surprises me how many people, even some engineers, have no idea what chemical engineers do. They know it’s very math and science intense and that they usually receive high salaries but that’s about it. I can’t really say that I can describe my major much better.

Written by    May 19, 2016

I’ve been in Brazil for almost two weeks now and I am still shocked every day at the beauty of this country.

Written by    Jan 11, 2016

Living on campus as sophomore this year was a great decision, partly because I got to be a pioneer resident in one of the brand new residence halls on North Campus.
