  • What brought you to RPI?

    My sister is an alumni and coming to see her perform in the orchestra or just visiting for dinner made me fall in love with the beautiful campus and interesting programs.
  • What is your favorite course at RPI and why?

    1200 Data Structures - this is my favorite class not because I enjoy the class but because it is such a challenge and every project is another puzzle to solve and I love it.

    The approach
  • Where is the most interesting place you've traveled?
