Class of 2024

Before college, Sonja had not been exposed to Engineering as a possible career. She became an EA to be a JMU engineering advocate for prospective students. She belongs to the Society of Woman Engineers and enjoys shopping, art, and hanging out with friends in her spare time. Sonja chose JMU Engineering because of the flexibility of the program. "I came into engineering without a strong desire to pursue a certain path. I felt a general program would help me figure out what I wanted to do."

How is JMU Engineering preparing you for your future?

"JMU Engineering teaches me time management, how to present projects effectively, and how to lead and work in a team environment."

Advice for prospective students:

"Engineering may seem like an intense subject, but if you balance your work and get help from your professors, it is manageable and enjoyable. Communicating with your professors is key - they want to help you. Lastly, Have fun and make friends. Part of the reason I love JMU Engineering so much is because of the friends I have made within the program."
