EDUCATIONSenior, Mechanical Engineering

What do you want to do once you graduate?
[I want to] work for an engineering company where I can make a tangible impact on improving the lives of others. Then, I would like to go to graduate school to obtain an advanced degree, possibly in business.

What is your favorite memory from being on PESC?
My favorite memory on PESC was running the 2015 Industrial Roundtable. As the director of the event, I had spent countless hours throughout the year to ensure its success. When it came to fruition, I was both excited and relieved that all of the hard work that my committee and I put into the event had paid off.

What made you apply for PESC?
I knew that the organization was a group of talented engineers dedicated towards making a difference on Purdue’s campus. My main goal in life is to leave a resounding impact on whatever I am involved in, and I knew that PESC would allow me to accomplish this goal while I pursued my education here at Purdue.

Where is your dream vacation?

EDUCATIONSophomore, Biomedical Engineering

What do you want to do once you graduate?
I plan to go to medical school, maybe throw a Ph.D. in there if I’m feeling it.

What is your favorite memory from being on PESC?
I loved working at the Industrial Roundtable and seeing months of hard work come together for such a large-scale event.

What made you apply for PESC?
[Another PESCer] Fernando invited me to meet him for free pizza. Turns out, the free pizza was at a PESC callout. I stood by the food the entire time until I realized I should probably pay attention.

Where is your dream vacation?
Anywhere in Finland!

EDUCATIONJunior, Computer Engineering

What do you want to do once you graduate?
I would love to travel the galaxy in my Millennium Falcon, but I will probably be an engineer instead.

What is your favorite memory from being on PESC?
I really liked traveling to Traverse City Michigan on Council Trip. I had some of the best ice cream there (MOOmers). It changed my Purdue experience because now I can’t find ice cream on campus that’s as good.

What made you apply for PESC?
I wanted to make a great impact on campus. PESC does a lot of cool events. PESC also gives out a lot of food. Therefore, PESC has a great impact on campus. So I applied to PESC.

Where is your dream vacation?
Either Mars or Canada. It’s a toss-up.
