With the school year complete and Summer almost in full swing, we would like to introduce you to one of our Summer interns. Meet Jacob Knepper. Jacob will be a senior this year at Geneva College, majoring in Civil Engineering. Want to learn about Jacob, his love for Cool Ranch Doritos or why he picked RGS? Then I invite you to read below and get a little familiar with Jacob. Welcome aboard!
Q: What made you decide to want to major in your field?
A: I decided to major in civil engineering because I did well in math and science in high school, and because I enjoyed the statics portion of my physics class.
Q: What excites you about RGS?
A: As I mentioned before, I’m very excited to have some exposure, here at RGS, to a side of civil engineering that I have not seen yet in my studies at Geneva.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: My hobbies include writing, recording, and producing music (I play piano, ukulele, and percussion/drums) as well as performing in various talent shows at my college. I also enjoy playing ultimate frisbee.
Q: Do you have any phobias?
A: I am terrified of heights.
Q: On a level of 1-10, how good are you at excel?
A: I think I’m an 8 or 9 on the excel scale.
Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: I have a lot of favorite movies, but I would have to say Inception is close to the top.
Q: What is your favorite food –the meal you could eat every single day?
A: My favorite food is Burritos—especially from Qdoba.
Q: What is something you can’t live without?
A: Okay, not to go back to food again, but I really love cool ranch Doritos and probably can’t live without them.
Q: Why did you pick RGS?
A: I picked RGS because I liked the inviting work environment and because the people who work here are excited about what they do–which makes for a great learning experience.
