What is something you’re looking forward to next year at Rowan?

I am very excited about meeting new people with diverse skills and interesting backstories.

What is one activity, club, sport or hobby that you did in high school that you’d like to continue with at Rowan?

In high school, I was on a FIRST robotics team in which we built robots to compete in competitions. I would like to continue something like this by joining the AIAA or even the Society of Automotive Engineers.

How or why did you choose your major?

I chose Mechanical Engineering as my major because I love designing and building things that serve purposes that benefit society in profound ways.

How did you get to know the campus? 

I took a tour of the entire campus in the spring of 2019 with my classmates who also wanted to see what Rowan was like.

What music do you like?

I really like R&B and pop music.

Night owl or morning person?

I am more of a night owl since all the best ideas come to me at 3 a.m.

Why Rowan?

Rowan is the most affordable university near where I live. Not only that, but all of my duel enrollment credits would be accepted by Rowan, which would give me a leg up once I attend. Additionally, I heard that Rowan is a great school for engineering that is ABET-accredited.
