I Found My Niche at the University of Rochester

Student Name: Nikki Mercer

School: University of Rochester

Major: Mechanical Engineering

“My name is Nikki and I’m from SoCal! I go to the University of Rochester in upstate New York. I am currently a junior majoring in Mechanical Engineering, and I’m a tour guide, I work in resident life, and I’m on the varsity field hockey team.

I never expected to be on the opposite side of the country for college but here I am and I love it. I met the most amazing people, got to explore engineering more and continued playing the sport I love. I’ve made the most amazing friends and I love to stay active on campus through Greek life and other organizations/clubs.”—@nikki.rm
