Kelsey Harlow is a senior majoring in mechanical engineering. This summer Kelsey is an intern for Acertus Consulting Group in Lenexa as a mechanical designer.
Harlow said that she does the calculations to determine how many and what size of air conditioning units go on top of buildings to keep everyone inside cool in the summer.
“Internships are great because you actually get to do the tasks that help the company complete projects,” Harlow said. “I have really enjoyed getting to meet my co-workers and work with them.”
Harlow said that something that she has learned this summer is that she has a good sense of direction.
“I have learned a lot of things that are way too nerdy for this article in respect to HVAC in buildings,” Harlow said. “I have also learned that I have a pretty good sense of direction that helps me get back to where I should be. I get lost a lot in Kansas City.”
The hardest part of the summer for Harlow has been seeing everyone with their dog and telling herself that she can not adopt one because she is still in school.
“Being an adult is pretty difficult,” Harlow said. “I have to look presentable every day, which is tiring. I also run errands on my lunch break like every other contributing member of society.”
Harlow said that what she misses most about Theta over the summer is having everyone around and always having someone to do something with.
“I am hands down going to be the oldest active Delta Eta, so I guess that is kind of cool,” Harlow said. “I am really excited to come back and make my last semester great.”
