At Northwestern, the idea of community, especially Christ-centered community, means there is a lot more togetherness in the engineering program. At least once or twice a day we are spending time together at the student center doing homework. When you’re doing something you all love, even if it is homework, even if it’s numerical analysis and thermodynamics, it’s still really cool to do [all of it] together in a community.
