Joshua Urbach

Student Leader: James Rossi and NGUYEN,KHOI,M.

I wanted to participate because i felt like Bill really wanted us all to succeed. The experience i gained in 140 and 202 really helped me decide that i wanted to stick it out in engineering. The classes and exam prep etc, made me not want to give up when the going got tough. What it meant to me... it meant that maybe if even it was one person i could make the college experience a little more enjoyable, and hopefully give the freshman an experience like i had, make them understand the power of engineering, making them want to push forward and succeed."

A memory that remains with me from my Student Leader days is:
Watching the students try and assemble and come up with genuine ideas for the wind turbine. It reminded me of how fresh and new things were, and how much I still didn't know. It was always fun fielding their questions and trying to nudge in the right direction without just giving answers.

Any leaders you'd like to shout-out to?
Shoutout to Gabriella Dipini for being the best EAS 202 leader in the business as well as being my biggest supporter my first year as a TA. I couldn't have done it without you.
