Katie Piotrzkowski

Hi! I’m Katie, a rising sophomore in CBE. I lived in Rodin College House this past semester and am also living there this coming year. I’m from Stamford, CT and attended a public high school. On campus, I am involved with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), AOE – a social and professional STEM sorority, Chem-e-car, and the club field hockey team. I am also a tutor with the Weingarten Center. This summer I am interning with the Stamford Recycling Department and volunteering at a vaccine clinic. I am also working a summer camp at a local nature center. I’m trying to learn more baking and cooking this summer. I also love trying new restaurants in Philly! I played a lot of sports growing up and in high school – field hockey, ice hockey, and lacrosse. I now enjoy running and club field hockey.
