What is your favorite part about being a student at The University of Iowa?
My favorite part is that from the moment I stepped on campus, Iowa felt like home. Everyone here is willing to help you succeed. The class sizes are great too. The smaller sized classes allow you to build connections with your fellow classmates and your professors.

Who is your favorite professor and why?

My favorite professor is my Intro to Engineering Computing professor, Professor Christensen, He always came to class excited to teach and was always willing to help in class and at his office hours.
What has been your favorite course?

My favorite course so far was Engineering Problem Solving. I loved working hands on in teams to solve problems such as calculating the flow rate of the Iowa River or building a tower out of popsicle sticks. 
What do you enjoy doing in your free time at The University of Iowa?

In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends, attending Iowa football games,and going to workout classes at the Rec.
