Scott Fink’s interest in math and science made UC’s electrical engineering program an ideal fit. Scott’s graduated valedictorian of his class from Highland High School in Wadsworth, Ohio. In addition to attending the University of Cincinnati, Scott lists receiving a perfect score on his ACT as one of his accomplishments.
Scott will enter into the electrical engineering program at UC as an ACCEND and UC Honors student. When looking forward to his future at UC Scott says, “I hope to receive my master's degree while building relationships through co-op.” Scott hopes to work on the design of prosthetics in the future, but is open-minded about other paths that might present themselves along the way.
UC’s freshman engineering program was a clear choice for Daniel Hethcox. “When I was first looking at colleges, I was interested in larger institutions with strong engineering programs as well as many other options,” states Daniel. “Cincinnati stuck out because of its strong reputation and incredible co-op program.” The specially designed freshman engineering program at UC will allow Daniel to try out the many different specialties offered within Engineering.
During his years at Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin, Ohio, Daniel kept himself busy. He balanced being a member of his school band for all four years with earning his Eagle Scout Award. As a student and newly accepted UC band member, Daniel says he hopes to, “become part of the community, maintain the academic success I am accustomed to, and find a few ways to leave my mark with the school.”
Over the past several years, the college has embraced a larger and better qualified entering class each fall. It is going to be exciting to follow the 2011 class during their years at UC and beyond. The futures are bright for these exceptional freshmen whether they plan to stay at UC to continue their studies, continue their careers in industry, or go on to found their own companies.
