Go to breakfast at the Morgan Dining Hall and talk with the friendly staff while I get my food. I eat a huge plate of fruits and bowl of oatmeal every morning as I listen to a personal development audio from various thought leaders.
Sebastian Rodriguez '20
Getting involved on campus provided Sebastian with the opportunity to connect with so many people, leading to some of the best lessons and experiences he he's had at WPI.
“Since coming here as a freshman, every single term has gotten better,” he says. “So many people here are willing to give and help without expecting anything in return.”
And Sebastian has found his own ways to give back. He's been a senator in the Student Government Association, a Resident Advisor, a Crimson Key Tour Guide, and served as a student representative on the Provost Student Advisory Committee. Heis involved in a number of other professional organizations and student activities, from WPI Toastmasters to the Ski & Snowboard Club to the Student Support Network.
He credits much to his positive outlook. “I am living the dream every single day no matter what happens. It's all about perspective … I feel so happy because I am working toward what I want in life, what I actually, truly want. And all the small things in the day, from helping people to learning from others, is what makes the big difference”.
After graduation, Sebastian hopes to continue helping others through coaching, speaking, and training on topics ranging from personal/professional development, to motivation, leadership, health, and nature.
