Brianna White is a senior majoring in Biological Systems Engineering. She chose this major because she likes to study biology and problem solve so she gets a mixture of both within her classes. Brianna has one more year at Kansas State after this semester and is planning on either applying to medical school or graduate school for biomedical engineering.
On top of being an engineering student, White is the co-president of the club softball team for K-State, a tutor, member of Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society, and also spent last semester and summer working in a research lab on campus. These positions, as well as being a leading woman for Theta, have allowed her to progress with her leadership.
“Being a co-president of the club softball team has taught me a lot about leadership. It has also been a lot of fun to go and compete against other colleges,” said White.
Along with being a leader for her own organizations, White mentioned how Theta helped her transition to Kansas State from her previous college.
“Being a transfer student, Theta helped me jump right in and meet tons of new people and make new connections,” said White. “When I’m surrounded by other women that are going out and being leaders on campus and in the community, it motivates me to do the same.”
When White isn’t making memories with her Theta sisters, she’s making more with her K-State family.
“My favorite K-State memory was this winter break when I got to watch the Cats beat UCLA at the Cactus Bowl in Phoenix,” said White.
As for White’s plans for the summer, she is not quite she what she wants to do but said that she is applying for research internships.
