Prospective plan for after graduation:
I have been accepted thus far to the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, University of Michigan, Ohio State University, and University of Wisconsin-Madison for structural design and plan to attend one of those.

My favorite memory at Valparaiso University is watching the United States hockey team play against the Canadian Hockey team in the Winter Olympics during Professor Hagenberger’s structural analysis class. Professor H could always tell when a good play was materializing because everyone’s eyes would focus in on the screen projected on the whiteboard instead of the notes he was writing, so he would periodically give up on notes and just sit and watch hockey with us.
