Hello readers! I've got some great news!
If you've been following my blog since 2008 (summer of my freshman year), you'll remember I took a one month seminar on Sysems Engineering in addition to doing my research in the Scholars Program. A few great things resulted from that class... 1) I found out more information about Systems Engineering and ultimately chose that for my Master's Degree, and 2) I met some wonderful people from Norway I would have never otherwise met.
One of the students in the class who I became close with, Thomas, is currently in the US and in Hoboken for the week to take a one-week seminar towards one of his classes. He is pursuing his Master's Degree in Systems Engineering at one of the universities in Norway (while working full-time), and his school has a partnership with Stevens that lets him take classes through Stevens that count towards his degree. Thomas and I have spoken on the computer, but we haven't seen each other in years! It's a blast from the past to be able to catch up with him face to face! It's amazing how much can happen in three years!
Below is a vintage picture of Thomas and I from Summer 08 when our class went on a sailboat on the Hudson!
