Meet our next Member of the Week, Cami Simpson. Cami is a sophomore studying Industrial & Systems Engineering from Chapel Hill, NC and is a member of Theta Class.
Question 1: If you could travel anywhere in the world where and why? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would go to Cappadocia, Turkey! Not only is the place rich in culture but the views are INSANE. Cappadocia is famous for its breathtaking valleys and rock formations, and you can take a hot air balloon ride through the valley. The sky is literally filled with hot air balloons. It’s MY DREAM!! If you haven’t seen it you should google it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Question 2: You are about to get into a fight, what song comes on as your soundtrack?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Whether I’m pumping myself up before a race, a job interview, or a midterm, I like to listen to the soundtrack of “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”. It’s the best movie ever (yes, I was a horse girl as a kid), and it gets me so hyped. My favorite pump up song would for sure be “Get Off My Back” (my middle school self really related to that song). If I’m not listening to this soundtrack, I’m definitely listening to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” on repeat.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Question 3: What other things are you involved in? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On campus I’m a freshman academy coach as well as a program assistant for the Maseeh Entrepreneurship Prize Competition! Off campus I’m a youth ambassador and philanthropist for Fundatia Inocenti (Romanian Children’s Relief)—a foundation dedicated to supporting Romanian children and families in need and preventing child abandonment. The people at the foundation are literal angels, and everyone should check it out!!
Big shout out to our Professional Chair @julialee5 for putting together an awesome Mock Interview Event!!! We had active members, alumni and company representatives give some tips and critique our behavioral and technical interviews. Great to see everyone out there having some fun and practicing. 👔👔👔
Meet Alice, our newest member of the week. Alice is a junior studying Biomedical Engineering from Jamison, Pa and is part of Eta Class! Here are her responses to our member of the week questions. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Question 1: What is your favorite Theta Tau memory?
I really loved last semester’s retreat! We went camping in Malibu and actually got to swim in the ocean (even though it was still freezing). It was a great time just hanging out on the beach and relaxing or playing games with everyone. We even got to see some shooting stars at night! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Question 2: What is your favorite class you’ve taken?
One of my favorite classes was ITP 342: IOS App Development, which I took last semester for my computer programming minor. It was really interesting to learn what goes into creating iPhone apps and really allowed me to tap into my creative side. At the end of the class we had a final project, so now I can say I’ve made an app before! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Question 3: Who is your favorite FRIENDS character?
This one is hard because I think each character has their own unique qualities that make them great, but I think I’d have to go with Chandler. He has the best one-liners in the show and has the perfect mix of self-depreciating humor and sarcasm that I find really funny.
That’s right, we’re back baby! Our first Member of the week of the Spring 2020 Semester is Rana Eltahir from Eta Class!!! Rana is a junior studying Biomedical Engineering. Here are her responses to our member of the week questions.
Question 1: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would like to go to China. My family has been thinking about going to China for a while now because my aunt is currently in China for her master’s program. I have always wanted to tour Asia and see cities like Tokyo or Hong Kong. Now that I have my aunt there, she can show me the amazing sites and food in China. ~~~
Question 2: What’s your favorite Theta Tau event?
My favorite Theta Tau Event is Painting night because it’s always cool to see other people’s abstract art of one another. It’s a great time just sitting around and painting with my other brothers and everyone’s work is either really funny or really good. ~~~
Question 3: Where can we find you around campus?
See the video!!!!
