BEST was the catalyst for me to pursue a degree in engineering. From my freshman year starting with 2021: A Robot Odyssey, I transitioned from “I might want to be an engineer” to “I am going to be an engineer.” Each year as I was exposed to different fields of engineering, I was able to narrow my interests and finally settle on Industrial and Systems Engineering thanks to the game “Total Recall.” I kept thinking throughout the six weeks, “Man, I wish I could find a major focused around this,” and sure enough there was. Reminiscing about “the glory days” still excites me, I could talk for hours on end about BEST. I love being able to mentor my old team, and seeing the same formula of hard work, blood, sweat, and duct tape working season after season!
