Chemical engineering was a natural fit for me because it allowed me to combine my love of math, chemistry and physics. There’s no better place in the world to study chemical engineering than the University of Idaho. Our professors integrate hands-on learning opportunities into many of our courses. I’ve had the opportunity to work with equipment such as a two-story distillation column, evaporators and heat exchangers, membrane separation equipment and a gas chromatograph, to name only a few.
While my studies have taught me the fundamentals of chemical engineering, the most helpful skill that I’ve gained is how to take in information and learn very quickly what is happening and what needs to be accomplished. This has helped me be successful in internships and hopefully in my job to come.
Chemical engineering keeps me busy, but I am a proud and active member in my sorority, Kappa Delta — serving as president in 2014 and the vice president of community service in 2013.
You make all of this possible for me. Your gifts allow me to focus on my passion for chemical engineering. Thank you. Please take a moment to continue your tradition of supporting students.
