As I was enjoying the art work of Maccabee Shelley in one of the galleries here at CSULB, I had the pleasure of meeting Oscar Ramirez. Immediately catching my eye with his hilarious graphic tee, I knew it would be a lot of fun to interview this guy. Oscar is a junior here at CSULB and is majoring in Electrical Engineering. He came from Santa Barbara where he attended high school for all 4 years and then 2 years of community college before he came to CSULB to pursue the rest of his college career. We began to talk about how much math sucked in high school and how we both barely passed our math classes. However, Oscar told me that it wasn’t until he went to college that math became second nature to him. He obviously found some sort of passion for the subject seeing that he is now aiming for a career in the field of Electrical Engineering. Oscar plans on getting an internship over at NASA where he later hopes to gain a permanent career working for them.
With all geekiness aside, Oscar tells me that he was very much involved in sports when he was in high school. He did football his freshmen year, but chose to do soccer from sophomore to senior year since soccer was a better fit for him.
Overall, it was really fun getting to know Oscar. He is an extremely friendly, chill, and laid back person. I hope to see him around campus more often! 🙂
