Burying the Big Chair

The mischevious work of certain Swarthmore students was featured on the College's homepage

The campus awoke on April 1 to find the big chair buried.  Students, faculty, and administrators were astounded.  The Facilities Department apparently got a number of sympathetic emails from professors expressing disgust for the disrespectful students who dug a giant hole in Parrish Beach.

Winter Break

I’m now back on campus after a thoroughly relaxing winter break.  Highlights included spending time in the Sierra Nevada and San Bernardino National Forests, surfing and enjoying bonfires at the beach, and riding the new Silver Line and Gold Line Eastside Extension.

E90 Update – Trip to the Bus Yard

Thomas Saf-T-Liner C2

For my E90 senior engineering design project, I will be working on pollution reduction at the local school bus yard.  I enjoyed my first visit to the bus yard, and it was great to learn about some of the particulate filtration systems already in use.
