They lived with us in our large home in a better town. Do what the says and i will respond immediately and we can get started. Studentt cant tell what it is but im sure its sexy.
Send a body pic or stats. I try to find a NSA buddy for a regular things together. Good guy for good country gal SWF blonde hair, blue eyes, large breasted.
Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree in aerospace engineering? I am fascinated with space and space travel, and want to make an impact on human exploration of space.
What made you choose UMD for graduate school? UMD is close to home, has a good aerospace program, and offered me a graduate assistantship. I decided to attend my Parents' alma mater of Purdue University for undergrad, getting bachelor's degrees in physics and math and a minor in astronomy. Midway through undergrad I decided I wanted to pursue aerospace engineering, and now, two years later, I am back in my home state getting a master's degree. Glen Burnie, MD Adviser: Long-term interest in the field as well as an interest in problem-solving.
Availability of funding, quality of advisors, and research topic options. In high school I really enjoyed math and music, so I picked one to make a career out of. In my junior year of undergraduate study I took a controls course that got me interested in the discipline, and a year later decided I wanted to pursue graduate research on the topic.
So now I'm back for at least two more years, and who knows what will be next. I still enjoy music, and spend my time playing when I can, but aerospace has become my career and my life. Why did you choose aerospace engineering as your field of study?
A combination of many factors. It helps that my parents are Trekkies though. We used to dedicatedly watch new episodes of Enterprise every week.
Needless to say, science fiction had something to do with it. I also enjoy learning about technology and using it to solve difficult problems, so there are naturally many aspects of the field I find interesting. In particular I enjoy working with computers to solve engineering problems, so I gravitated towards work with guidance, navigation, and control topics. What else should your fellow grad students know about you? I like almost any pet animal, but especially dogs. Derek Paley Why I would like to work in Aerospace: I have always been a tinkerer and as a kid I loved the mystery behind things that could fly.
As I grew up, engineering became the clear winner in terms of fields that most aligned with my interests. I completed my Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering to fulfill the side of me that loves to tinker. The next step for me was to learn to tinker on things that would eventually fly across the country, or across the solar system. Why I chose UMD: The availability of funding was sure a big bonus. On top of that, I was excited to get to live in a completely different part of the country and have some new experiences.
However, upon graduating from high school I chose to get a bit further from home and go to the University of Michigan to get a Bachelor's in mechanical engineering. To change things up even more I decided to spend a summer abroad, studying at TU Berlin during my final few semesters at Michigan. I am always looking for a new adventure and love to get outside of my comfort zone to experience new things, meet new people and see a bit of the world in the process.
Unsure at this time. Things others should know about me: I used to be a gymnast! I am also intending to pursue a professorship or a research position after graduating. I received my B. Hobbies Rock climbing, soccer, basketball, hiking, camping, sports, outdoors, flying. I was interested in rockets and airplanes at a young age and have continued to find them fascinating. The field is ever changing and the challenges are always exciting.
I've wanted to work on space technology since I was a small child and I decided that I would either approach it from the physics side, or an engineering perspective. I applied to graduate programs in both physics and Aerospace engineering and decided that the engineering path was the more practical of the two; I may even be able to somehow combine them. The school was recommended to me particularly Dr.
Stuart Laurence by a respected friend and colleague. In addition, it's quite close to where I will also be working as an Aerospace Engineer. So it's a win-win from my perspective. I prefer running but biking or swimming aren't bad either. I like flying, long walks, and libraries; museums and gardens are wonderful and I sang in my high school and university choirs. What are your plans post-graduation? Possibly a master's in physics but certainly continued employment technology development.
I'm quite passionate about space development and even participated in a failed project to design and build a private rocket to reach space. The project supposedly only failed because of funding but considering it was me and two other guys designing and programming a rocket, it was quite a bit of fun.
Research interests of my advisor. I've been working for the last two years and am excited to start grad school at UMD! Undergraduate research with Dr. Location, facilities, faculty, Dr. To one day be involved with the commercial space industry. I'm interested in working in the aerospace industry The.
The facilities and the availability of funding. About Daniel I was born in Barranquilla, a warm coastal city with a lovely carnival in the north of Colombia. When I was 12, moved to Bogota, the capital, where I graduated from high school and then did my bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and Physics. I love science and engineering which was what drove me to study those majors and to continue with a Masters.
I am very close to my family and spend plenty of time with them. I am usually quiet but I love having interesting conversations, given the right topic. Hobbies I like listening to podcasts, riding bike, walking on natural trails, and dancing salsa. I am drawn by the challenge associated with aerospace engineering and I am interested in the future developments in this field.
Work for a few years then decide if I want to come back to academia to do a PhD or continue working. I hope to get to know new people who share similar interests and make friends, not only colleges, during my stay at U Maryland.
I wanted to be a researcher since my first day at the university. To me, the idea of contributing to the development of technology sounds very exciting. I also want to learn as much as I could in my field of expertise. UMD is a great school in Aerospace Engineering, especially in rotorcrafts. I know that I can work with the best in the area and learn a lot at UMD.
He has studied in the same city and got his B. During his senior year, he worked at Roketsan A. Right after graduation, he started his M. He focused on flight simulations of the operational and limit maneuvers of the rotorcrafts and the resulting loads acting on the rotors and the airframe.
He received his M. Hobbies Motorcycle riding, skiing, free diving, spearfishing, and camping. Since I was a child, I was astonished by aircrafts and rotorcrafts. I wanted to be a pilot for a long time but in my high school years, I realized that it is even more interesting to learn all the engineering behind them.
I am one of the lucky ones who had the chance to study in his dream department. I would like to continue research and increase my knowledge in my area. I really enjoyed the research I participated in during my time as an undergraduate at UMD. I wanted to continue doing that kind of work while furthering my education. As an undergraduate at UMD, I had nothing but great experiences with the faculty and other students.
I was able to see many of the research facilities around campus and am excited to have the opportunity to work directly with some of these facilities, such as the Glenn L. I was able to gain experience through competitions involving robotics and design. I also took interest in dynamics and controls during my time as an undergraduate, so I am very excited to be able to work on all of this for my graduate work. I would like to able to work in research and development in industry, but I am still considering working towards a PhD.
I think that aerospace engineering is an exciting field that I would like to pursue a career in. The University of Maryland has an outstanding program in aerospace engineering, and a collaboration with NASA, which is where I would like to pursue a career.
I think aerospace engineering is an exciting field that I would like to pursue a career in. I have an identical twin sister. My career goal is to use mathematical methods to solve engineering problems. Aerospace engineering is a good choice to apply my methods. The graduate study makes my research more important. Bauchau's research interest matches well with mine.
Stephanie also directed him to Learning Abroad and the Hinckley Institute to explore his interest in returning to Germany to master the German language. YoungJae learned about the Office of Undergraduate Research from Stephanie, as well, and is now volunteering in a lab. He plans to apply for a UROP assistantship at the end of the semester.
YoungJae always considered himself an introvert. Since coming to the U, however, he has noticed that he is very busy and interactive. I realized that if I wanted to do something and become something, I have to interact with people and make myself vulnerable and be brave. YoungJae shares the following advice: Always set goals first and then act. As you take initiative and begin to pursue your goals, it gets easier. Migrating to the U.
Their understanding of the importance of higher education is what motivated her to take advantage of concurrent enrollment, which opened doors to her accelerated path. In their first meeting, she learned about his research and his experience navigating resources and spaces in higher education.
Wazir introduced Elizabeth to the McNair Scholars program and, thanks to his support through the application process, she is happy to share that she is now a McNair scholar. Being a McNair Scholar allows Elizabeth the opportunity to interact with other high-achieving students. By Dontrell Morrow Fall Courtney Zaffino is a first-generation student in her junior year studying Health Promotion and Education.
Since meeting Steph, Courtney has become more involved with campus life. She works on campus, has had a great experience as a UFit volunteer—which helped her discover her love for working with children with disabilities—and is involved with filming PAC 12 sporting events.
Steph also played a role in reassuring Courtney that it was okay to change her mind about her major. When Courtney entered the U, she planned a pre-med track. She thought this made sense given her interest in helping people. Soon, however, she began to see that it was not the best fit for her. Steph helped Courtney choose a major which she loves and in which she has excelled.
Some of your best decisions will be some of the most unexpected. Keep all your options open, and never be close-minded during your years at the U.
Ian Lehmann is a sophomore completing prerequisites in order to declare the Electrical Engineering major. His goal is to work in the field of renewable energy, specifically by starting a renewable energy company. Wazir helped him draft emails concerning student government and offered both professional and personal advice, including counsel regarding his interest in research.
Participating in research in the area of renewables is an important goal for him, and he is currently exploring research opportunities.
She is interested in studying population dynamics, especially within families. But she would text me and email information about events. She offered to help connect me with different people. She reveals the biggest accomplishment Nedra helped with: Jelani also confided in Nedra about her struggle as a student of color at the U.
Nedra gave Jelani advice and introduced her to students who shared these feelings. She helped me to be more confident and embrace the fact that I am African-American. Jelani admires the unique approach of SSEI. Even though she is not physically here with me, because of her, I feel more confident being here. After his first semester here, he realized that he did not want to be an engineer. Every night, after returning from practice or class, he would play his guitar.
Their earliest conversations were about adding a minor, as Haoran was deeply interested in developing his talent for drawing. Later conversations turned to the question of changing majors. After consulting his parents and more conversation with Christine, Haoran realized how much he enjoyed wedding and event planning. He had experience with these in both China and Salt Lake City. When Christine suggested he look into the Communication major, it just made sense.
As Haoran looks back on his experience at the U, his main accomplishment was discerning the goal that would guide him. The moment he chose his own path and did not follow what his parents or family wanted, Haoran learned to be himself.
She is the one who has been on my side since day one, giving me the support to help me choose to follow what I wanted. Haoran offers this advice: In most cultures, families try to make many decisions for you, but those decisions may not be the ones you would make for yourself. Never cover yourself up; if that is who you are, that is who you are! B y Sydney Magana Spring Yajaira Peralta is a sophomore with a passion for science.
She is in the process of completing prerequisite courses in order to apply to the Medical Laboratory Science major and is currently on a pre-med track. Before entering college, Yajaira studied French for seven years. She plans to declare the French minor. She remembers sitting outside when Jen walked up and introduced herself. At the time, Yajaira was frustrated about not knowing what major to declare. Since meeting Jen, Yajaira joined and is now editor of a student-led social justice newspaper called Venceremos , and she has found many service activities through the Bennion Center, including her favorite, cleaning up Red Butte Gardens.
Jen just made me feel welcomed. Time Management and balance is everything. Hillary Finch is a senior who will graduate this spring with a double major in International Studies Global Health emphasis and Health Promotion and Education Community Health emphasis. Hillary has always been interested in health, initially majoring in Biology. During her sophomore year, Hillary participated in the Semester at Sea program, traveling to 14 different countries.
They made an immediate connection. Christine has supported Hillary with useful resources, advice, and in goal setting. Christine helped me find those strengths within me and use them to my advantage.
Take every opportunity possible. It goes by fast! B y Sydney Magana Fall Gina Sombatsaphy is a sophomore who plans to major in Finance and minor in Political Science.
Upon entering the U, Gina was admitted to the Business Scholars Program which provided an opportunity to travel abroad and meet students who share her passion. Gina met Student Success Advocate Stephanie Santarosa at orientation and later received an email from her. At the time, she was living off-campus and struggling with the transition to college. So I emailed her. She provided resources that led to a summer internship with Enterprise and turned into a part-time job.
She keeps me sane. Caleb Webb is a sophomore who recently declared a major in Physics and is planning to add the Math and Astronomy majors, as well. While a triple major may sound overwhelming, Caleb says he would like to pursue all three as they complement each other conceptually and the coursework overlaps. These majors combine his interest in universal theory and discovery with his strong math and computation skills.
Although a major in Astronomy is not currently available, Caleb heard that it might be coming. If it does not get approved, he says he will absolutely pursue the minor. Caleb had no idea what he wanted to do as a freshman but knew that he really enjoyed learning. Stephanie emailed him with her contact information, and Caleb took initiative to respond seeking help declaring a major. Since then, he has been in contact with her a number of times with questions or to seek her counsel.
Michael Worthen is a sophomore pursuing a double major in Finance and Math with an emphasis in Statistics. After exploring the programs the U has to offer, he was drawn to the collaborative environment of the School of Business, which led him to choose Finance.
After a Student Success Advocate spoke in one of his classes, Michael visited the website to make an appointment with Bryce Williams. He hoped to work on improving his grades and study habits. But I found out I was wrong. Michael met frequently with Bryce to continue to check in and stay motivated. Michael offers this advice to other students: Colby has a remarkable love and passion for the history and interpretation of scripture.
He wants to study the composition of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. Colby explains that there is so much someone can learn by studying the historical context in which the Pentateuch was written and by studying it in original Hebrew.
During their conversation, Colby shared with her some of his interests, including his interest in getting involved in research. This opportunity has led to some amazing experiences, including receiving special research grants and attending some prestigious conferences.
They will help you take your interests to the next level. B y Yvette Toribio Spring Jazmin Martinez is a sophomore with a passion for art. She is majoring in art with an emphasis in painting and drawing and minoring in Spanish.
In middle school, her art teachers were impressed with her work and motivated her to pursue an art degree. Jazmin is also interested in sculpture and exploring the possibility of medical school. Realizing that Jazmin had various interests, Christine offered the idea that she design her own unique road-map to graduation and to track her extracurricular activities in a journal.
Throughout this process, Jazmin has become a more organized leader. She has coordinated several events for various student organizations, including a fundraiser for MEChA and a blood drive for a service project. With the help of a Student Success Advocate, Jazmin has been able to accomplish so much in a single semester. Patrick Muvunyi is a freshman studying Biochemistry at the University of Utah. He picked this major because he loves science, understands it well, and despite his young age, has engaged in research with various doctors since his junior year of high school.
Having these experiences has strongly defined his career path into Biochemistry. During summer orientation, Patrick heard about the Student Success Advocates, but it was not until he got a referral that he decided to check in with one.
As a freshman, Patrick struggled to choose his classes. He felt largely unprepared to write college papers and, with a new transition, he wanted to incorporate some fun into his busy academic schedule.
Stephanie helped Patrick in making choices regarding his classes. She referred him to websites that pertained to his needs; helped him to enroll in writing courses that would improve his professional writing skills, and recommended recreation activities such as river rafting that fulfilled his interests. Patrick felt like Stephanie was a true friend.
She had extensive knowledge of the resources in and out of the U. It became refreshing for him to talk to someone. Everyone is so busy that it is difficult to step back and talk about these daily concerns. She enrolled in the fall of , and immediately felt at home, she recalled. As the Hispanic population in the United States has exploded, so has the number of Hispanics pursuing higher education. Between and , the college-going rate among Hispanic high school graduates grew from 22 to 37 percent, according to the U.
Hispanic undergraduate enrollment more than doubled, to 3 million. More than a quarter of young Hispanics — 28 percent — now have at least an associate degree, up from 15 percent in This growth has compelled colleges including Salem State, whose student body went from 5 to 14 percent Hispanic over the past decade, to pay more attention to lingering achievement gaps between their white and Hispanic students. In pockets across the country, institutions are adding Latino leadership programs, hiring more diverse faculty and expanding their cultural programming.
To some extent, those efforts appear to be working. More Hispanics are going to college, and their graduation rates are rising. Elycea Almodovar, a junior at Salem State University, right, walks on campus with her roommate, Sabrina Ornae, a junior.
Almodovar was drawn to the school because of its diversity. This progress remains uneven. Nationwide, the proportion of Hispanics who graduate within six years is still 10 percentage points lower than the proportion of whites, according to the Education Department. The proportion who graduate in four is nearly 14 percentage points lower. This disparity is leaving many Hispanics stuck in low- and middle-wage jobs, with profound implications for them in particular and the U.
Already, one in every four elementary-school students is Hispanic, the U. Department of Education reports. Since Almodovar enrolled, the graduation gap there has re-opened, reaching as high as 11 percentage points. Racist and anti-immigrant graffiti has appeared on the campus baseball diamond and bike path.
And some students have begun demanding that the administration do more to diversify a faculty that is far whiter than its student body. The stubborn gulf between white and Hispanic students is at least partly due to systemic disparities in education. Compared to their white peers, Hispanic students are less likely to attend preschool, and more likely to attend low-performing public primary and secondary schools with inexperienced teachers and high leadership turnover.
Nearly two-thirds end up in overcrowded and underfunded community colleges or second-tier public universities, while only 15 percent attend one of the most selective colleges, where graduation rates are the highest, according to the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce.
Hispanic students are also disproportionately low-income and the first in their families to seek higher educations, characteristics that make them more likely to drop out. A sign on the Salem State University campus was hung in response to racist graffiti. Cultural expectations can create additional hurdles. Hispanic men, socialized to be providers, may feel pressure to drop out and work to support their families.
But demographics are not destiny. What institutions do with the students they have matters deeply. Even institutions with similar student bodies can have dramatically different results.
Take Massachusetts state colleges. From to , the achievement gap between white and Hispanic students at Salem State averaged 1. But at Fitchburg State, the gap averaged The three colleges enroll similar shares of low-income students with similar SAT scores. Still, he said, there are two things that seem to work for most colleges: Salem State has made progress on both fronts.
