Hi! My name is Jessica Pierce and I am a junior. I live in Toronto, Ontario right now, but I've also lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama. I am a biomedical engineer with a pre-med concentration, so if you are looking for advice on how to handle pre-med and engineering classes at the same time, I can probably help you out a lot!
As a UTK student, I love that there are plenty of chances to get involved. Personally, I am serving as the Vice President of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)-UTK Chapter this year, I'm a member of Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and Engineers in Medicine (EMED), I work as an Undergraduate Research Assistant in the Upper Limb Assist Lab, and I play oboe in the UTK Symphony Orchestra. Getting involved, especially when you are coming from somewhere far away like me, is a great way to see how UTK is such an amazing school and meet a diverse group of people who will become your lifelong friends.
Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about the engineering program or UTK in general! I will be more than happy to help you out!
