1. What has been your most memorable UT PGE experience?

By far, my most memorable UT PGE experience is when I studied abroad as part of the Croatia Maymester program. Several other PGE students, faculty, and I explored every corner of the country – hiking through national parks, swimming in the sea, cliff-jumping, and so much more.

1. What inspired you to apply for UT PGE?

I applied for UT PGE because not only is it one of the best petroleum engineering departments in the country, but the university as a whole is incredibly diverse so it is an amazing place to meet people with many different backgrounds. It also helps that UT is in one of the best cities in the country.
