It is one of my favorite times of year again when prospective students come to visit Lehigh and learn more about what we have to offer. Candidates day is this weekend for the P.C Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science, and I have decided to wake up super early to be in Packard at 8:30 am to answer questions these students and their parents may have. I will also be giving a tour, which is actually really fun because it brings up a lot of memories for me. As I talk about classes and professors I think about all of the amazing things that I have been able to do on Lehigh’s campus. I participated in this day last year and can’t wait for this weekend to come so that I can express my love for Lehigh and engineering. It will also be awesome because I will get to hear from the new President John Simon. It will be interesting to see what he has to say to these prospective students about coming to Lehigh. It is definitely a huge decision, and I hope all of these students will come after participating in Candidates day. Hopefully I don’t trip on the sidewalk while attempting to walk backwards.
