I chose CEC because it is a smaller school and I wanted to be more than just another number, which is how I felt at my previous school. What do I love most about CEC? The small class sizes and the ability to take classes at the community college. I enjoy the opportunity to be academically challenged every day. I also like my Knowledge Bowl team – I love having a group of very close friends who share my interest in academics. I am pursuing a career in aerospace or nuclear engineering because I enjoy physics and the application of sciences in general to real-world situations. Also, I like planes and space! When I graduate, I am hoping to develop nuclear energy for space technology – satellites and spacecraft, before going into the Astronaut program. I want to go to the moon or Mars!
