Wild About Water
Julie Hess- Sophomore, Pursuing a BS in Engineering
Outdoors is where she likes to be. Julie enjoys trail riding and hiking and thinks water is cool! Engineering at E-town kind of runs in Julie's family. Her brother Jack graduated from E-town in 2014 and started working for an engineering firm within four months of graduation. Pretty impressive. But Julie has big plans too. Although she hasn't defined her "dream job," what she does know is that she wants to continue spending time outdoors, working to purify water sources with a specific interest in nitrogen pollution of the Chesapeake Watershed. "I never thought of engineering as a career. But I discovered that I can combine my love of being outdoors with making sure the fresh water supply is protected." Julie is looking ahead—first an internship or co-op where she can bring her classroom experience to the real world. Next, making sure that clean water is available for generations to come.
