My Name Is Evan

Hi there everyone! My name is Evan Cuneo and I am a freshman! My major is Telecommunications and I'm so excited to be here at Penn State. University Park was the first college campus I was ever on, my first official college visit, and the home of many great memories, so deciding to come Penn State was a no-brainer for me. I am from South Jersey, about thirty-fourty minutes from the Jersey Shore. I am the oldest of two, with a younger sister who is about to start her sophomore year of high school. I love movies, television, and music, and I recently started my own blog about those interests called EMC Entertainment! In high school, I acted and sang in my school's musicals, landing three lead roles over my four years. Additionally, I served as Secretary of my class on Student Council for two years, and was involved with my school's Chamber Choir, Show Choir, Italian Club, National Honor Society, Ambassador's Club, and Friends of Rachel Club. I consider myself a very outgoing person and I plan on getting involved in a lot of clubs at Penn State.

Now, done to the nitty gritty. Why am I here in SC200? Well, yes, I do have to take a certain amount of science classes, but I was trying to find ones that seemed the most appealing to me and this one sounded kind of decent. No previously knowledge required? Different topics every class? Count me in! In high school, I made the mistake of struggling through AP Biology and AP Chemistry. While I did make it through the classes with good grades, I really didn't enjoy the restless nights of studying, researching, and working on the same dumb problems. I never really loved science before, and those classes did no favors! After I finished my AP Chemistry final my junior year, I thought I was done with science classes forever. Alas, Penn State requires a certain amount of science credits to graduate, so here I am again. Still, these topics seem much more interesting than covalent bonding and different species of animalia (I'm not even sure these are actual topics, I'm just overexaggerating because that's what I do when I don't like something). I guess that explanation also answers the second question: Why am I not a science major? I really didn't hate science before those classes, and even after, I still don't really hate it. It's interesting sometimes, and it's responsible for a lot of the greatest discoveries in human history. It's just not for me. That said, I have the utmost respect for science majors, because the dedication is ridiculous and it's something I could never do.

Anyway, that's my spiel about myself and this course. I'm actually really excited to start this blog and I think it'll be a cool way to learn more about science outside the classroom, especially things we like. So I'll probably be writing about science things related to movies, TV, or music...you know, if I can find cool topics about that. Feel free to talk to me in class, I know it's a big awkward room, but I'm always open to making new friends and meeting new people. Hope you all have a good Labor Day weekend and I'll see you in class on Tuesday!

Hey Evan, what town in jersey are you from? I am about an hour from Seaside. I like how you used the Jersey Shore to describe where you are from

Hi Jake! My town is named Waterford, it's really small, but it's closest to Sicklerville, Atco, Hammonton, I'm not sure if you've heard of any of those!
