This week I met Mario Martinez for the classmate interview. Mario is from around this area, just like I am. He commutes to Long Beach, but he does not have a license yet, so his mom drops him off. Mario is also a freshman, as well. Unlike myself, he has already decided what he wants to major in and do for the rest of his life. He told me that he is a civil engineer major and is even in an engineering club, which is pretty interesting. I thought it was a good way of networking.
Mario also told me that he has three sisters. They are all older and he is the youngest in his family, just like I am. There were a couple things that we had in common. He also told me that he gets along with his sisters fairly well. While talking, he told me that one of the art pieces that he enjoyed more was the one of the hanging window. He said that he thought it was interesting that the room was hot too. It was something that stood out to him. He also told me that when he was in high school he was a wrestler. Mario is the second wrestler I have met in class. He was on the varsity team at his high school and really enjoyed his experience doing that sport.
Another thing that Mario told me was that he is in a fraternity. He is in Zeta Beta Tau. He was very interested in telling me about his fraternity. I can tell that he has been enjoying it so far. He told me about how many new people he meets because of it. He says that he has met many sorority girls because of it and that many people are very nice. He has been enjoying all the events that the fraternities and sororities throw, as well.
