A few minutes with Amy Head ’10

Amy Head ’10, of Evanston, Ill., is majoring in mechanical engineering. She’s a graduate of Evanston Township High School.

What attracted you to Lafayette?

It was a small school, had a good engineering program, and was away from home. It was something different from the Midwest.

Your favorite professors?

Prof. Schaffer. I had him freshman year, and his enthusiasm made a two-hour class go by so fast. He was tough, but I always enjoyed how he taught and what we would say next.

Tell us about studying in Bremen.

I got to interact with people all over the world. One of my roommates was from India. I did have a host family while I was there, but I did not live with them. They were HUGE Werder Bremen soccer club fans and took me to a game, which was unbelievable.

We were all required to take a German Politics and Culture class, which was interesting, and we went on three trips together as a class. One was to Berlin, one to Brussels, and one to Krakow, Poland.

Involved in any student groups or activities?

I am the president of the women’s club soccer team and a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. I take part in the Habitat for Humanity and Adopt-a-Grandparent programs.
