Transferring to a new school can be a nerve-racking experience in the best of times, but doing so during a pandemic? That makes things even tougher.
What’s helped Herbie is WPI’s abundance of clubs and organizations. Attending virtual meetings and socially distant activities has allowed them to find not only new clubs and connections, but new friends—“The fact I can find clubs for just about all of my interests is really rad! When you have something dear to you as a baseline interest in common with someone else, it really helps foster important connections with people.”
In addition to involvement in clubs and other activities, Herbie is also proud of their accomplishments through project work—even while remote. “I’m very much a learn-by-doing type, and the fact that I can do that even while remote is fantastic.”
After graduation, Herbie would love to go into researching or developing cleaner energies—or at least products that run on them—with the ultimate goal of working with electric vehicles.
