Do you have any advice for incoming students?
Two words: Fun Management. A wise senior told me this when I was a freshman, so I too will pass it down: No matter how much time you choose to spend on your coursework, there will always be more time to have fun. You have to make it happen for yourself… preferably a lot of it.

Who was your favorite mentor at Webb and why?
Professor Gallagher has an unimaginable wealth of engineering knowledge. He knows how to explain things effectively and always follows up with unanswered questions because he is genuinely curious to know. Like all the professors at Webb, Professor Gallagher genuinely wants us to succeed.

What’s your favorite spot on campus and why?
My favorite spot on campus is the student garage. While I appreciate the beautiful views other locations may offer, the student garage is where I go to relax and unwind. Sometimes I leave frustrated, other times jubilant, but there is never an experience there I have regretted.

What will you miss the most about Webb?
The thing I will miss most about Webb is the people. The people are what made me decide to go here and they are ultimately what has made me stay. Everyone at Webb is committed to each other’s success both academically and socially. I look forward to visiting!
