there are many success stories from Gunn Alumni. what about liberal arts and humanities majors? there's more to life than tech, science, math. try to make a living in the arts. it's tough out there. Gunn has changed over the years.

@Enough already, randy: man relax, randy was just suggesting something; it's not like he ever meant to insult anybody at all, from the looks of his response, but i'm sure he would have wanted to insult people like you.

@randy albin: hate to break it to you, but there is almost zero future in humanities or liberal arts career. it's not biased, it's statistical and logical: what would liberal arts actually help someone in? probably just being a teacher of that subject, but other than that, that's it. although i respect the suggestion, certainly more than the other guy, the reason why so many students are receiving more recognition and success in STEM is because they are more available and more useful in life.

on another note, Anne is one of my great friends and definitely did a great job in leading her club to great success. she has always been helpful and done her best in achieving her dreams, and making it to the top isn't her goal but her "regular routine". i'm proud to see her become a strong leader and noble companion, and wish her best of luck in leading Gunn RSI and pursue an engineering career in the future.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
