I am currently a full time student at Iowa State, but I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska. I am a part of the Greek system here at Iowa State and belong to the fraternity Phi Delta Theta. I also enjoy being active, whether it be outside fishing or playing football. Below are a few websites from Iowa State.

Class in this Semester:
Engr 170. Engineering Graphics and Introductory Design. (2-2) Cr. 3. F.S. Prereq: Satisfactory scores on mathematics placement examinations; credit or enrollment in Math 142. Integration of fundamental graphics, computer modeling, and engineering design. Applications of multiview drawings and dimensioning. Techniques for visualizing, analyzing, and communicating 3-D geometries. Application of the design process including written and oral reports. Freehand and computer methods.
Chem 165. Foundations of Chemistry for Engineers. (4-0) Cr. 4. S. Prereq: 155. Continuation of 155. Principles of chemistry and properties of matter explained in terms of modern chemical theory with emphasis on topics of general interest to the engineer. Chem 165 or 167 satisfies the chemistry requirement in engineering curricula. Credit may not be applied toward graduation for both Chem 160 and another chemistry course. Only one of Chem 163, 165, 167, 177, or 201 may count toward graduation.
Phys 221. Introduction to Classical Physics I. (4-1)
Cr. 5. F.S.SS. Prereq: Credit
or enrollment in Math 166. For
engineering and science majors. 3 hours of lecture each week plus 3 recitations
and 1 laboratory every 2 weeks. Elementary mechanics including kinematics and
dynamics of particles, work and energy, linear and angular momentum, conservation
laws, rotational motion, oscillations, gravitation. Electric forces and fields.
Electrical currents; DC circuits.
H. Honors. F.S.
Math 166. Calculus II. (4-0) Cr. 4. F.S.SS. Prereq: Grade of C- or better in 165, 165H, or high math placement scores. Integral calculus, applications of the integral, infinite series. Only one of Math 151, 160, the sequence 165-166, or the sequence 181-182 may be counted towards graduation.
