Nicholas has definitely learned a thing or two about time management at WPI. Being able to graduate with two majors and a minor is no small feat, and it took Nicholas a lot of extra hours not only in the library, but also outside the classroom to make sure that the course sequence he designed was doable.
Outside of his academics, he also makes time to be a big part of the WPI Water Polo Club, which was created by two students during his junior year. Nicholas recently helped successfully coordinate the first WPI Water Polo tournament, which hosted five other teams from the region, and he even helped bring home WPI’s first win in the sport in his position as goalie.
In the future, Nicholas hopes to tack on one more degree by pursuing a master's in Regional Planning at either Virginia Tech or UMass Amherst, and to one day become an urban planner.

I’m an early riser, so I’m usually awake about two hours before my first class begins.
I head back to my apartment after morning classes to I can grab some lunch and complete a few assignments before I’m back at campus for afternoon classes and lab time.
After dinner, you can find me alternating between doing homework and playing video games.
My day ends with water polo practice – the team has become probably the most important thing to me during college. I love the fact that a group of students can come together and make their own club and then compete and host events within two years of existence.
