Assignment #3
While meeting with Lilli, I learned about her interests in horse-back riding and coaching
little kids soccer, two things that she was passionate about during high school. She also told me
about her desire to major in either chemical or mechanical engineering, and how she hopes to
find research opportunities and internships that can help advance her in one of these fields. She
hopes to study abroad during her years at University of Washington, and hopes to have the time
to do so more than once. Although she may be interested in a study abroad program that
directly relates to her major, she also likes the idea of a random exchange program for a more
holistic undergraduate experience. If she has time for a minor, she would like to also get a
degree in psychology, economics, or business to complement her engineering major. Outside of
academics, Lilli hopes to get more involved in her sorority.
One potential experiential learning opportunity for Lilli would be an internship at the U.S.
Department of Energys Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. This laboratory has a program
for undergraduate students called Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) that
provides undergraduate students with 10- to 16-week summer internships in the lab in Richland,
Washington. Students can apply annually. This internship could fulfill the Research category of
Experiential Learning. Another experiential learning opportunity could be a study abroad
program. Two study abroad programs that connect to Lillis major are Chemical Engineering
China: Chemical Engineering Lab at Zhejiang University and Engineering Jordan: Water in an
Arid Land. Study abroad programs that are more random or could relate to a potential minor
could be Business Britain in London or Foster School Undergraduate Exchange with
Copenhagen Business School in Copenhagen. These study abroad programs would be
considered as International Engagement opportunities. Finally, Lilli could volunteer at one of
Seattle Youth Soccer Associations (SYSA) member clubs as a coach or coordinator. This would
be considered a Service Experiential Learning Activity.
