Men’s Cross Country
Major: Chemical Engineering

Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?
I chose Vanderbilt because of its fantastic academics, beautiful campus, and Southern culture.

What are your career goals?
I hope to attend medical school after graduation and then become an oncologist after medical school.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
It takes really good time management skills ans drive to succeed.

What is your ritual before taking a test?
The night before the test I go over the class notes and homework until I know how to do all the different types of questions.  IN chemical engineering classes, all the exam questions are based on examples we did on homework or in class.

What is your favorite quote?
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”-Wayne Gretzky
