This week’s classmate conversation goes out to my lover and my best friend, Brian Sath.
I met this extraordinary guy at freshman orientation, and now here we are two years later. Brian is one of the most motivated and dedicated people I know. Brian does it all, but what really makes him special is that he puts all of himself into everything he does. He will never give less than 100% in life. Something I admire about this guy is how he is able to balance everything in his life. He takes advantage of every opportunity given to him. Brian is one of those people who turns walls into doors of opportunity. When you have a conversation with Brian, you will always leave a little wiser. He has so much to offer to the world. Brian is a 3rd year Biology major, the Vice President of AMSA, and is a member of the Board of Trusties in ASI.
Brian entered my life and showed me my potential. He taught me that you can do anything you put your mind to. Brian is also brutally honest, which is a good and a bad thing all in itself. He tells you what you need to hear even if you don’t want to hear it, but that’s only because he truly cares about the people around him and wants the best for them. This boy has made his way into my heart and it’s always crazy to see how far we’ve made it. Pictured below on the left was from 2014, and the right was taken recently, on November 2016. We’re complete opposites so we always bump heads, but at the same time, that’s why we work. That’s just how we are.
To answer the question of the week, Brian thinks that college in 20 years will be extremely difficult. It is already so competitive now, he imagines that it will only get harder as time goes. Schools will be even more prestigious and acceptance rates will lower. Classes are already so impacted now, so in the future, he believes that the chances of getting the classes you need will lower even more. Brian is trying to get into medical school and says that it is already hard to get into. He thinks that in the future, it will be nearly impossible. An upside to college in the future is that there will be so many technological advances, that students will have an easier time learning (hopefully).
