Athens, OH 21 February 2014 – This semester has offered many great challenges and interesting experiences. I have been fortunate enough to meet with some distinguished guests. Just a few weeks ago, the Dean took the time to sit down with some students to get some feedback on the College. It was great to know the voice of the students was getting heard and changes that were made were for the better.
Yesterday, Dr. James Wynne, the 2013 Russ Price winner, ate breakfast with students. He was very interested in us, (Russ College juniors and seniors) doing what we want to do and are passionate about. Next week, one more distinguished guest–Alan Schaaf, founder of Imgur–is also taking the time out to talk with a group of Russ College students before giving a presentation to the university at-large with Alexis Ohanian.
From a technical standpoint, my senior design team is going as planned. We have formal approval from Atco and Passion Works to go ahead with our senior design team. Currently, We are in the process of purchasing our final pieces, welding our frame, and assembling our printing plate machine. It is exciting to see how an idea can quickly become a reality. Below is one of our earlier model of our design.
