It takes a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication to stay engaged in course work with the added pressures of working in the field through co-op placements, but Jason has mastered the art of accomplishing it all. “Keeping up with my course load, I’ve had to face the challenge of multi-tasking and multi-learning. When I say multi-learning I am referring to several classes that overlapped with other classes. While studying the material for one it helped me understand the material in another.”
Jason’s advice continues as he encourages other students to maintain a healthy perspective. “Always remember that school is important but it is not everything. Meaning that you need to find a balance that includes studying to get the grades you desire as well has having life experiences, because college should be filled with great memories.”
“No matter where you come from or if you feel everything is going against you, always remember that tomorrow is another day to do your best. If you truly believe that at the end of each day you did your best, cards will fall in your favor at their own time,” explains Fischer who began his college career with less help than anticipated. The burden of paying for college was left solely on Jason’s shoulders, making the start of his time at UC more stressful. After years of hard work, Jason now feels overwhelming recognition for his achievements both inside the classroom and out in the field.
Upon graduation Jason looks forward to pursuing his career. He will graduate in confidence knowing the foundation built at UC will take him farther than he can even imagine. Fischer also looks forward to marrying his fiancé after school, only adding to the incredibly exciting time ahead. Wishing Jason all the luck in his endeavors, the College of Engineering and Applied Science recognizes this outstanding student as a worthy Engineer of the Month.
