Halper, Susan

Major: 
Civil Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

I hope to do research for my first year of RISE. I’ve been wanting to get involved in some sort of research here at UMD and I feel like junior year is a good time to do so. Also, it would give me the option of continuing the research into senior year.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

For my second year I would like to do some kind of service, most likely tutoring. I did a lot of tutoring in high school for honor societies and other things, which I really enjoyed. I haven’t gotten to do much tutoring in college and I’d like to get back into it.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

I’m a member of Alpha Omega Epsilon, the engineering sorority, and I work as an assistant for the Clark School’s Office of External Relations. I also participate in a lot of different intramural sports.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

I haven’t had too many “cool engineering experiences” so far, but I did a Rube Goldberg project in high school physics which was a lot of fun and very satisfying when it actually worked.
