Plans after WC: Brogen said he would like to get a job in software development, “possibly working on automotive self-driving technologies using machine learning.”

Plans after COVID-19: “Just to go out with friends again. Also, I’ve never been to a professional football or hockey game so those are two things that I’d like to do before life gets too busy for it,” Brogen said.

What’s been keeping you busy during quarantine: “Video games, family and work. While I was home with my family, I spent a lot of time helping my grandparents out with home maintenance since they were a bit on edge bringing in professionals to do somethings around their home,” he said.

Learned something new: “While helping my grandparents, I learned quite a few skills. I was working with wiring light fixtures and helping them put in a new toilet and sink. They’re turning me into a bit of a handy man around the house,” he said.

Your quarantine show, movie, and/or book: Brogen’s quarantine show is “Avatar: The Last Airbender” and its sequel “The Legend of Kora.”  His quarantine movie is “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Work/Internship: “Right now, I’m waiting to hear back from a possible internship with a company in Stevensville, Md. If I’m passed over for that, I’ll most likely be working for admissions this summer on campus,” Brogen said. 

Fun Fact: “I’ve gotten into learning about cars over the past few years and just recently got my first project car running and road legal,” he said.

Advice for students in quarantine: “Set a schedule for yourself and do your best to keep to it. You would be surprised how much better you feel when you force yourself to get up and moving instead of just lying in bed all day,” Brogen said.
