The Things Engineering Students Live For (Well, For Me At Least)

So what would might be one of the best ways to get out of an all work an no play quarter of engineering?

Have some fun work to participate in of course!!

Aside from being involved in Engineering Ambassadors I have a real passion for space exploration. One way I get to fulfill some of that passion is by working on a high altitude experiment balloon with a team of engineering students. It’s fun, gives me hands on experience and shows prospective employers I can work in teams; an all critical aspect in nearly any career pursuit in today’s work environment. Finding a student organization or a few that you are dedicated to working with builds amazing friendships and always seems to result in fun times no matter what the activity may be. Participating and building relationships with some of the upperclassmen and even graduate students on the team has helped to pull me through tough times in the classroom.

Until next time I leave you with a few photos of our good times!!
