"I'm part of Clarkson Formula Knights and I'm the aerodynamic subteam lead, which means I design the aerodynamic package of the car. When I first starting driving the car, I thought I was going to be terrified...but once you're in the car and in the zone, it's just really freeing. And driving at competition, you get all those excitements and the adrenaline rush. And it's a really, really great experience that I don't think I would have anywhere else."Kate Kerwood '25, BS in Aerospace Engineering
"As a Business Analytics major, I am proud to say this journey could not be more rewarding. Leveraging STEM in a program that allows me to develop an understanding in information systems, creating strategic pathways, and learning to present and communicate effectively with my colleagues gives me confidence for my future. I wouldn't change it for the world!"Lauryn "Milly" Wilson '25, BS in Business Analytics
“I wanted to arrive as a Junior and dive headfirst into all the outstanding things each class and Clarkson has to offer. The transfer process was easy, and many of my previous credits counted toward my progress at Clarkson.”Jacob Hatch ’24, BS in Software Engineering
