What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
Through Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity: President, Service Vice President, Treasurer, Chapter Relations Officer, Pledge Class Fellowship Vice President, served over 250 hours of community service.
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
The scholarship I was awarded helped me to focus on my schoolwork and post-graduate job search without having to worry about paying back student loans or working part-time while in school.
Why did you choose to attend the University of Maryland, what makes this place special to you and what is your favorite part of being a Terp?
University of Maryland offered me a blend of all of the best features from the other schools I was considering at the time: a diverse student and faculty base, small classes with the opportunity to have personal attention from professors (especially in Honors and upper-level courses), award winning world-class faculty, flexible scheduling in both liberal arts and technical areas of interest, the ability to earn two degrees in four years (though I chose to earn them in five), religious and cultural tolerance among the students, and the chance to conduct undergraduate research (through the Gemstone Program).
