During my time obtaining my Master's degree, I've been meeting up with a colleague who is also working towards Statistics-Analytics. Although he has more experience than me, that isn't for Civil Engineering, he's been showing me more lessons about long-term insight outside of work. I have been as devoted ...

The organization I've been using for all my classes involved two-way organization and memory. Every time I finished a semester, the content of my classes would be split into digital and physical format, so that I would have one copy of each important document. The physical documents were kept inside ...

It's been years since anyone in my family celebrated Halloween, so it's also been years since any of us dressed up. I do remember dressing as a cap salesman character, though, one of the last times. ------------------------------ Alexander Granato A.M.ASCE Student Bexley OH [email protected] ...

LinkedIn is one of my "professional" social media accounts as well. It's how I am following dozens of companies I have met with at numerous Career Fairs, and how I stay connected to over one hundred students and professions I have met with over the years. I am so glad I managed to turn off the notifications ...

When I was that young, my attention was divided between school work, some after school activates like building with Knex and playing piano, and playing video games.

Often, I will be able to differentiate their faces and our histories afterwards, but not what their names were. To that end, I focus on remembering the names of a few specific people, especially ...

I am sure there should be trust that employees will focus on their work while working; i.e., that no one will spend their working hours playing games or deliberately risking the security of the work computers. To that end, I think it's reasonable if a company would block gaming sites that are irrelevant ...

Several months ago, ASCE uploaded an article about buildings in Germany made to resemble the word, "home". It was designed to be a historic reminder of the American history in that city pertaining to World War II. https://www.asce.org/publications-and-news/civil-engineering-source/civil-engineeri ...
