Joseph Clark

Class of 2022
Hometown: Montgomery Village, MD
High School: Watkins Mill H.S.

"My favorite thing about FPE is how the size of the major, and the field, allows me to make personal connections with faculty members. It's easy to engage with your professors and form relationships with them, which in turn helps students obtain research opportunities and internships, since my professors now are the same ones that taught many current industry professionals."
