I am currently a student-athlete and athletics offer many perks as well as responsibilities. As an athlete you get priority scheduling before all other students which is a nice perk. There are also varsity athlete- only weight rooms. With that being said there are still many areas for those not on varsity teams to work out. A brand new $100 million dollar athletic center will be completed in the fall of 2017! Also being a student-athlete comes with more academic meetings and mandatory study hall hours, but it offers more advising to help you stay on track and offer opportunities.

It's Interesting! Although my major (Chemical Engineering) can be demanding and time-consuming, it is quite rewarding. I am exposed to a lot of professional connections, and therefore am confident about securing a good job once I graduate. I like that we get to work with machinery in labs, that we would use in the future. The professors are quite knowledgable and approachable. The workload, however is crazy! One would require a lot of patience and commitment to actually stick with the program and sit through it for four years, as it is difficult and competitive!

I Love Chemical Engineering, but It's Torturous! I love my major - Chemical Engineering. I have learned so much more about the field in the two years I have been in school. The department at school is quite helpful and clearly knowledgable about the various real world applications of what we learn in school. The coursework is hectic, and it's nearly impossible to ever expect a perfect GPA. You would need to follow the courses in the given order, however, if you want to graduate in time. I would recommend declaring a minor as well!
I would like to obtain a PhD in the future, and establish myself as an engineer in a pharmaceutical company. As this is a broad field, I'm quite confident about securing a job as soon as I graduate!
