Where do you go to school?

The University of Maine. I will be graduating next May.

What are you studying and why did you choose this major?

I am studying Civil Engineering. I chose this major because I want to use my gifts and talents to serve others. I find it fascinating and rewarding to work on a project and then see it being used to benefit those around you.

What has been your favorite class so far and why?

Transportation Engineering has been my favorite class because I enjoyed learning how engineers optimize both efficiency and safety on our roads. Analyzing and designing roads was like solving a puzzle!

I hope to learn about the process of a project from start to finish, and seeing all the steps taken to satisfy the client while following all design requirements.
