Major: Undergraduate IEOR

IEOR: What are your post-graduation plans (Grad school, industry, travel, etc.)?

Nicholas Lofgren: Industry (Undecided)

IEOR: What is your favorite IEOR class and why?

Nicholas Lofgren: IEOR 115. Not only was the class taught in a very engaging manner by Professor Goldberg, but through the 10 person project team I was able to meet many amazing people in other disciplines.

IEOR: What is your favorite Cal memory?

Nicholas Lofgren: Rushing the field at multiple football games was one of those college experiences I had envisioned, and it certainly did not disappoint.

IEOR: What is your advice to younger IEOR students?

Nicholas Lofgren: Branch out. So many great student organizations provide a great start, but just simply talking to people in line with people while you wait for coffee may introduce you to a great friend or mentor. Berkeley has a lot of amazing people but it is all up to you to actually get to know them.

IEOR: Is there anything else you would like to add?

Nicholas Lofgren: The IEOR department and its students have given me a second home in Berkeley, and I am so thankful to have found myself in this major.
