What Made You Decide to Attend UMD? 

I attended UMD because of the scholarships I was offered and its proximity to my hometown. 

Best Experience with a Class or Project 

I'm currently taking ENME423:Building Energy Modeling, and I really enjoy the course because it's focused on HVAC&R, which is the industry I want to go into.
