Cast

Roman

Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, Roman Gutierrez is a senior pursuing a five-year BS/MS in biomedical engineering. Roman has already had a lot of practice answering questions from prospective students as an intern with the WPI admissions office; he is involved in Greek Life, Student Government, and first year advising. One of his most unique experiences at WPI was becoming CEO of the student-run Gompei’s Goat Cheese initiative—a role that should serve him well in his future career plan to join a start-up focused on social impact or medical technology.

Morgan

A sophomore pursuing a bachelor’s degree in management engineering and mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in management, Morgan Mitchell admits to having an obsession for all things WPI—down to her customized WPI license plate from her home state of Utah. She shares her enthusiasm with new students as a Community Advisor and is involved in Student Government and Greek Life. One of her favorite WPI memories was taking Gompei for a “date” during her first year as part of the Student Government homecoming team.
