Christian is a sophomore majoring in Civil Engineering. He’s not really sure where he would like to end up, but ideally he would like to be working for the government or an environmental sector, making sure things are done right.
He was born and raised in Reading, PA. He lives with his mom and dad, and his sister Stephanie. Him and Stephanie are two (and a half) years apart, and are “tight as siblings could be”. He hates when she wears heels because it makes her taller than him. In high school, he was on the football team and wrestling team and will demonstrate his moves to you if you annoy him.
Christian joined APO after hearing about it through FRESH START day of service. He was looking for something to do in college and met a few brothers at FRESH START. He pledged his first semester of his freshman year, fall of 2011. The next semester, he had the highest number of service hours in our chapter. His love for service helped him to be elected as Assistant Service Vice President the following semester.
This semester, Christian is currently serving as our Service Vice President. He’s head of the service committee and is working hard to plan a variety of events that cover all four tears and appeal to the different tastes of our brothers. He is also on voting exec and helps make all the important decisions of our chapter. His advice to fellow brothers is to “get your service hours done early”. His advice to everyone is, “even if you don’t think you can do something, take on responsibility to grow as a person and help learn life skills”.
Christian is a member of the Athena family. His big is Nick Schwartz and they are very close and enjoy running about State College wreaking havoc. He is also a wonderful big to two littles, Sam Sampsell and Jasmine Yeung. Christian can be found in the APO office during all hours of the night doing homework. He also loves dinosaurs and boot camp. He’s there every Monday and Wednesday from 5:15 – 6:00pm. He enjoys keeping his mind and body in tip top shape and is frequently sarcastic. Sometimes it’s difficult to pick up on his sarcasm because he’s speaking in German, another favorite past time of his. He enjoys mellow, alternative rock such as the Goo Goo Dolls, and also soundtracks from movies like Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean. His fears include being attacked by veliciraptors, being in the dark and in enclosed spaces, and heights. Lastly, one thing he would like to do before he dies is to go into space and see what Earth looks like when you’re not on it. He is free spirited and so much fun to be around so if you haven’t gotten to know him yet, you should! If you’re not sure where to find him – check the office.
