What I love most about UHP

I love UHP because of the experiences that I can chase after. I feel like the whole world is laid out in front of me. All I have to do is grab a map and chart my course! Also, from interacting with the staff, I believe that they truly are here to help me grow into the person I want to become. I feel like they really care about my journey, and that is something I did not feel from other advisors at other colleges I looked into.

Favorite honors experience

In the future, I am hoping to take a seminar about Art, Architecture, and Engineering in Ancient Rome: The Roman Experience. This seminar will allow me to dive deeper into ancient architecture and inspire my future in architectural engineering.

Best UC moment so far

I have made some great memories in my first few weeks here at UC! A few highlights are card and sushi night with friends, and trying to slackline in the hammock trees. (I have fallen a few too many times, but it is so fun!) Looking ahead, I am excited to go explore the city to find more sushi restaurants and see all that Cincinnati has to offer.

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing about.

What's next?

Other than studying for my engineering classes, I will be waking up every Tuesday and Thursday for Air Force ROTC physical training at 6:00 A.M. dark and early. After graduation, I will serve as an active duty officer for the Air Force.
