Snider, Emily

Emily Snider
Major: 
Civil Engineering

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

For my first year in the RISE program, I am focusing on research. I think having hands on research experience will be important as I continue with my career, and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with faculty and grad students.

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

For my second year in the RISE program, I am going to focus on service. I think it is important to give back to the community that has provided me with so many opportunities. I am already involved with Engineers Without Borders, and I would like to either get more involved with that organization or a different service oriented organization.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

I am currently involved with the ASCE Steel Bridge team and Engineers Without Borders.  I am also a sister of Alpha Omega Epsilon, the engineering sorority.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

My coolest engineering experience has been working with the steel bridge team. It was a great experience see the bridge be designed and then actually help construct it the next semester and compete at the regional and national competitions.
