IN HER OWN WORDS…
“Being that aviation is such a small niche, what I found to be most beneficial about Embry-Riddle, was the opportunity to establish a good network within the industry, including professors as mentors and fellow students as future coworkers.”
“What I loved most about the university was the common interests among students. Since ERAU is such a specialized university, with students coming from all around the globe, I was able to learn about aviation from all different aspects, just by talking with students and sharing our various past flight and engineering experiences.”
ADVICE FOR FUTURE STUDENTS
“As long as you’re really passionate about it, you can do anything – try to involve yourself in as many various activities related to your field as possible, so you can understand it from many different aspects, and try to connect with as many mentors as possible so you can learn from their experiences and build a support system with them.” — Kallie Glover
