Abigail Haines - Sophomore
Pursing a BS in Computer Engineering
Abby is a Presidential Scholar and a first generation college student. She works hard-in the classroom, in the dining hall and as a Resident Assistant in Schlosser Hall.
She "builds community" on the PiE Floor, where Partners in Engineering holds big study sessions and helps underclassmen with engineering challenges. "Friendships in the major are critical. You'll sink hard without them. Now that I'm through physics, I'm breezing through everything."
Abby found out early that she had way more fun programming—figuring out circuits and processors and how they work—than building things in a lab. In fact, she's had a fall and spring internship at a local electronics company—no rest for Abby. In fact as she puts it, "I panic when I have free time—should I be reading or studying?"
