Eliza Mount, Junior, Civil Engineering

Since my first involvement with the Women in Engineering Program, I have grown as a student, a leader, and an engineer. There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to inspire and encourage young women through this program's emphasis on retention, recruitment, and outreach. I am so thankful for the countless opportunities and experiences WIEP offers which have shaped me into the person I am today. Not only have I built professional connections, but I have also gained lifelong friends and mentors.

Choosing Purdue Engineering has been one of the best decisions I have made to date. The curriculum has pushed me to expand my horizons in order to become a true problem solver. I have made connections that would not be possible otherwise and have been surrounded by classmates and professors who challenge me to learn and grow through every experience. Purdue has prepared me for a lifetime of success, and I am so excited to see what goals I can accomplish in the rest of my college career and beyond!
