Fischell Department of Bioengineering junior Colleen Gulick has been named one of the nation's Top 10 College Women by Glamour Magazine.

The Spring City, Pa. native, described by Glamour as "the fastest thing on two wheels," is a top-notch competitive road and track cyclist and a member of Team Kenda. Gulick is the only woman in the U.S. ever to medal in a men’s cycling race. She is currently ranked sixth in the nation for female cyclists in her age group, is a three-time national champion and 30-time national medalist, and holds the record for the most medals won in a single national championship (eight). She also plays defense for the Lady Terps' field hockey team and is an honors student.

For the past 55 years, Glamour’s Top 10 College Women Competition has recognized 10 students from across the country for their campus leadership, scholastic achievement, community involvement and unique, inspiring goals.

L’Oréal Paris exclusively sponsored this year's Top 10 College Women awards, which took place April 3 in New York City. Gulick and her fellow winners each received a cash prize, a trip to the ceremony, introductions to top professionals in a variety of fields, and a gift bag from L’Oréal Paris. They will also receive national recognition in an editorial feature in the May 2012 issue of Glamour, which hits newsstands on April 10.

In honor of this year’s competition, Glamour hosted a panel, Defining Success Your Way: The New Secrets of Getting Ahead, at the New Museum in New York City. Moderated by the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Cindi Leive, this panel of successful women in diverse fields—including Allison Williams, actress (HBO’s Girls), Jennifer Hyman, chief executive officer of Rent the Runway, Tika Sumpter, actress (Gossip Girl), Sarah Hurwitz, White House speechwriter, and Aimee Mullins, actress, athlete and L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman—offered advice and insight on being successful while still doing what you love in your career. Video from the event and’s coverage is available online.
