Career Fair

Career Fair Junior year is finally upon us and with 2 years of college under our belt, we are ready to tackle the last two years. It feels surreal to be done with two years of college but with that comes new responsibility, life changing decisions and preparing to be an adult. The first thing…

Holy Holi

This weekend Lehigh celebrated Holi by throwing enormous amounts of paint into the air and at each other.  The festival is supposed to resemble new beginnings and letting go of the negative things that have been holding you back in your life.  Last year I was unable to go but was excited to make it…

IM Fun

Here at Lehigh, depending on the Season, there are different intramural sports occurring. The sports include Dodgeball, Softball, Basketball, and others which are played in a tournament style for a given schedule.  Different groups across campus will create teams and enter them into the pool of competitors.  There is no grand prize for winning the…

My experience with MySQL

In ISE 224, Database and Design, you work with what you’d expect… A lot of designing databases and understanding how they work.  One of the biggest coding languages related to database design is SQL (sometimes pronounced sequel).  We have learned a little bit of SQL code and how to create queries (the act of drawing…

Walk for the cure!

Right before spring break, my fraternity hosted a fundraising event that was supposed to raise money and awareness for Huntington’s Disease.  It is a neuro-degenerative disease meaning that people lose certain functions in their body as the disease progresses.  At the walk, a brother who graduated last year came back to speak about how the…

Intro to Electrical Engineering

This semester I am in a course called ECE 083, which is an introductory class to electrical engineering for students not majoring in ECE.  Why would you take a class in electrical engineering if it’s not your major? At Lehigh, all engineers are expected to take three or four classes in different engineering fields.  It…

ISE Plays With Legos!

In my ISE 132 lab, we got to play with Legos!  This may sound pretty childish and may seem to have nothing to do with Industrial Engineering, but it was actually a very helpful experience!  We were split into groups of five or six, and were tasked with building Lego’s Blizzard Blazer.  Each group had…

ISE 121

Last fall I took a course called ISE 111 which focused on probability.  I am now enrolled in the course that succeeds 111, which is ISE 121.  This course focuses mainly on statistics. Most other engineers at Lehigh take a major-specific course that combines both of these subjects into one semester.  Both probability and statistics…

What’s Up With Winter?!

Lehigh, being located in southeastern Pennsylvania, sees its fair share of different weather systems.  The winters can be very cold and very snow-filled, which to some is awesome while others not so much.  I personally am not a fan of the cold, and if Lehigh wasn’t such a prestigious school, I would urge people to…

Summer in Hong Kong!

Today is very exciting for me as I was formally accepted to represent Lehigh in one of the Lee Iacocca International Internships for this upcoming summer!  I will be working at Hutchison Port Holdings in Hong Kong.  The internship actually requested industrial engineers, but also was open to people majoring in some of the business…
