Laboe, Gregory

Gregory Laboe
Mechanical Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

My first area of interest is entrepreneurship. I am very interested in the business sector and I want to start my own business eventually. Additionally, I have already collaborated with students in Hinman CEO's. This is my first area of interest because If I can expand further, I want to work on a business the second year, while doing another area simultaneously.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

My second area of interest is research. I believe research is a great way to maintain and enhance technical skills that are critical in engineering. Additionally, I am very curious as to what my professors do outside of class. This would be a great way for me to learn more and enjoy doing so.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

I am an active member in Army ROTC, club lacrose, and my fraternity.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

Cool engineering experiences for me are when I see some pretty incredible things and understand how they work. I really enjoy going to engineering showcases because it gives me ideas for the future. I also like to apply what I learn in school to things outside of it. For example, I really like working at the car mechanic shop during the winter and summer breaks. Every time I go back there, I have a new perspective on things and I learn more.
