I am Michael McKnight, and I am currently a freshman in the Class of 2012 at North Carolina State University. Here at NCSU, I intend to major in Biomedical Engineering, and minor in Business and Spanish. I chose to study biomedical engineering because it will allow me to combine my love of science and engineering with my passion for helping people directly. Through this field I can work to identify where the needs are most and then work to design products that solve this. I hope to be able to do this on the international level as well.
North Carolina State Universities halloween festivities have always been rivalled by those at UNC-Chapel Hill's Franklin Street. Since I have never participated in either of these activities it is difficult for me to judge them. However, I have heard that "Hillsborough Hike" here at NCSU could be improved if it were more geared towards 18-21 year olds. According to people I know, it is not so much fun on Hillsborough if you are under 21. This is probably for obvious reasons.
