You have paved the way for me.
Thank you for supporting the University of Tennessee! The campus
mission and spirit are energized with your involvement.
My classmates and I are fortunate to have access to the faculty,
facilities and resources supported by generous alumni and donors. As
a junior in the College of Engineering, I am pursuing my dream of a career in nuclear engineering.
This is a career goal I wouldn't have dreamed possible without the
support and encouragement of my professors and peers. I've been
inspired by UT's emphasis on diversity and producing more women
engineers – sparking my passionate involvement in the Society for
Women Engineers (SWE).
Through the opportunities provided by my college, I also have
secured an internship with Exelon, which has provided hands-on
experience working with nuclear fuels and reactors. These
experiences solidified my interest in working with nuclear energy and
will prove invaluable to my future.
Your gift makes real-world experiences like mine possible. Alumni
contributions sustain scholarship aid, faculty support, technology
and academic opportunities outside of the classroom.
On behalf of all of my fellow students, we are grateful for your
support. Go Vols!
