Austen shows off MSU to two of his visiting cousins.
The following is a January 2020 update from Austen: College has been nothing short of an incredible experience so far! I was recently accepted into the Information Technology school where I will receive my IT minor eventually. With these Information Technology classes I have become proficient in coding and website design. As far as my major goes, I have been cranking out accounting classes each semester and it has put me ahead of schedule, I will graduate next spring with 150 credits rather than the regular bachelors degree requirement of 120 credits. The C.P.A. exam requires that you have 150 credits. That is the reason I have loaded up on classes each semester. I am still a member of the Honors college and the NCAA wrestling team at MSU. I currently have a 3.7 GPA.
As far as this summer goes, I have locked down an internship with ZFTRW a tier-1 automotive supplier back home (Romeo, MI). Recently, I have been working on the creation of an app that helps individuals “break the ice” with others. I will keep you updated on this project my partner and I have recently taken on. This idea has introduced me to a ton of resources around campus, and really opened my eyes to all the resources that a college campus has to offer.
Time has been flying by. I can’t believe I will be a senior soon. I appreciate you and the Sandbox Foundation and appreciate all that you have done for me!
