Welcome to my webpage!

My name is Garrett Riggs, and I am a freshman at NC State University. I am currently working to CODA into the Nuclear Engineering program at NC State. The reason I chose this major is because I have always liked math and science and nuclear energy is a safe and efficient way to produce power. It is a science that is very relevant and I believe it will continue to be relevant into the future. I would like to end up working for a company that is interested in space travel so that I could work on nuclear power systems for spacecraft.

One of my favorite hobbies is mountain biking. I am from the mountains in North Carolina so I had plenty of trails to ride. Now that I am in Raleigh there isn't as much riding to do here as I am used to. I plan on taking a mountain biking course for one of my fitness electives. I ride a hardtail bike, meaning it has no rear suspension. This means that when I ride, the trails feel rougher, but I can usually go faster because less energy is lost to a rear shock when going over bumps in the trail. The major downside to this is that significant jumps can damage parts of the bike because there is nothing to absorb the shock of landing.
