Finals season is kinda mid, tbh.

Name, School, Major, Hometown: Bruno Rergis, SEAS, Mechanical Engineering, Phoenix, AZ.

Claim to fame: Former Co-President of CSI, now just focusing on building satellites and rockets at CSI (at least trying to).

Where are you going? Boston for an internship for the summer then right back to Columbia in the fall for my Master’s in Mechanical Engineering (one more year, one more year).

What are 3 things you learned at Columbia and would like to share with the Class of 2027? 

  1. GCal everything (especially Junior/Senior year, it gets busy)
  2. Finals season isn’t actually that deep
  3. Take classes that are, above all else, interesting (GPA’s are temporary, your newfound passion for waste management systems is forever)

“Back in my day…” JJ’s was 22/7, 125th was known for construction, Provost Boyce was Dean Boyce, and Mill was a viable option for dinner with friends near campus.

Favorite Columbia controversy? The Sundial. Not that controversy, that one.

What was your favorite class at Columbia? I’d have to say it’s between Energy Sources and Conversion, Solid/Hazardous Waste Management, or The Carceral US!

Whom would you like to thank? My friends, family, the morning birds, sunsets, and sunrises, all for keeping me company or keeping me sane (sometimes both) through many, many psets!

One thing to do before graduating: Take a History or Earth and Environmental Engineering class, you won’t regret it.

Any regrets? Not enough exploration! New York is so big that I wish I had made more time to see more of it as an undergrad!
