What's your favorite UD memory?

My favorite UD memory was at an ETHOS build where we teamed up with a local grade school to create a new water supply system for their garden. We installed a small water tower that would supply water to the garden beds by a bike pump. I loved the opportunity to work with children and inspire creativity from a science and engineering stand-point.

Fun Fact

I am a improviser on sabbatical. I performed improv with the Second City in Chicago on the Teen Ensemble for 4 years.

Piece of advice you'd give an incoming student

Use your resources! Go to office hours, get to know your classmates, be involved in clubs and organizations, and find an upperclassman who can act as a mentor for you.

Why did you choose UD?

The University of Dayton is home to people who are passionate about improving the world, starting at the communities we live in. I love the collaborative and spirited culture here that encourages diversity and acceptance.
