Why I Love M&T: Aaron Guo and Tim Miller

AaronAaron Guo, M&T Class of 2017

I love M&T because it gives me the opportunity to engage with so many students from such diverse backgrounds and with such different perspectives. Through M&T, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to get to know future leaders in technology, business, their overlap, and everything in between. M&T, in my opinion, has been unparalleled in opening doors to unbelievable opportunities in both my professional and personal development.

Aaron, from Gainesville, Virginia, is currently on the Alumni Mentorship Committee of the M&T Student Board. He studies Systems Science within Penn Engineering and has yet to declare his concentration in the Wharton School.

The reason I love M&T is because I am a part of a group of people passionate about so many interesting and unique things. If I ever want to learn about something I did not know before, all I have to do is take a trip to the M&T office — no joke! Without fail, there is always a conversation going on in the office about something I have never heard of before. M&T students have provided me with so much perspective on so many exciting topics outside Wharton and Engineering classes. For example, I have learned so much from two classmates: Oliver and Monica. Last semester Oliver and I worked on a project team and he shared with me his love for all things aviation. He showed me a really interesting flight tracking website and taught me about all the different types of commercial planes and interesting liveries. Monica has shown me all the cool things that can be done with data analytics. I was hesitant at first to learn more about things such as SQL and Tableau, but Monica inspired me to jump right in. Next semester I am planning on taking two data analytics classes to keep improving my skills.

Tim, from Glen Rock, New Jersey, is a member of the M&T Class of 2016. He studies Materials Science within Penn Engineering and Finance in the Wharton School.
