Welcome to the home of Batman!

My name is Nolan Hopkins. I am currently a first-year student in the First-Year Engineering program at NC State University. I have yet to decide on which major I wish to change into, but I am interested in aerospace/mechanical engineering, electrical/computer engineering, and chemical engineering, in that order. Aerospace and mechanical are my top choice because I have enjoyed working in those fields in the past. Electrical/computer engineering and chemical engineering mainly have my interest for the career opportunities available in those fields. I shall hopefully join one of these programs in the spring semester of this year.

One of my favorite hobbies is the sport of Quidditch, as in the sport that the wizarding world enjoys in the Harry Potter books. We play using a team of 7 players- 3 Chasers that handle the soccerball-sized Quaffle and attempt to score by putting it through one of the three goal hoops (each worth 10 points), defended by a Keeper. Each team also has two Beaters, who throw Bludgers (small dodgeballs) in order to knock the other team off their brooms. If you get hit by a Bludger, you must tag your goal hoops in order to return to play. Finally, each team has one Seeker who chases the Snitch (a person with a tennis ball in a gold sock tied onto their pants) and tries to catch the Snitch in order to score 30 points. Whoever has the most points after a set time wins.
