Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
I chose to attend Grand Valley because I knew they had a lot of options as far as what you wanted to go into, with different clubs and types of things. I could choose anything I wanted.

What do you like best about Grand Valley?
Not only did I get a great education, but I enjoyed it - outside of the classroom and inside of the classroom. I have friends inside the engineering department, and I also have friends that are in completely different disciplines and we all get along great and have a great time.

How have you benefited from Grand Valley's liberal education foundation?
In engineering it's all about experience and Grand Valley students know about many different fields, not just their specific discipline.

How will Grand Valley help you meet your future goals?
Grand Valley absolutely helped me meet my future goals. They're not helping; they already have helped. I've got a great opportunity to get a career at GE, which I wouldn't have gotten if I didnt have the co-op opportunity at Grand Valley.

How has Grand Valley's faculty made a difference in your college experience?
The faculty is ready to help you. They respond to emails promptly. They're more than willing to help. They're there for the students.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
The advice that I give is to just keep going. It's a lot of hard work, but it's going to pay off. I'm loving my experience here.
