Schoolcraft Connection

I’ve never been a fan of writing about myself so let’s rip this band-aid off and get into it.

My name is Matthew Fular and I am the Editor-in-Chief for the Schoolcraft Connection. I’m full of jumbled yet diverse knowledge and I strike a mostly healthy balance between cynicism and idealism. Sarcasm is my first language and I believe life without laughter is just another Shakespearian tragedy. If I am not reading or doing homework, I’m stressing out over the unrealistic expectations I place on myself. In summation, I’m an average college student.

My passion for writing stems from my passion for reading. Reading has always been a form of escape, a coping mechanism of sorts. I believe reading is one of the best ways to obtain information and writing is one of the best ways to deliver it. That way of thinking led me to pursue a position on the Connection and the rest is history.

I am currently pursuing a degree in chemical engineering. I hope to break the stereotype of engineers being poor communicators during my time on the paper, which remains to be seen. In my ideal world, I will be sending my regards to friends and family from Stanford University or MIT this time next year pursuing my end goal of a doctorate in chemical engineering and a career at NASA.

If you’re still here, Dear Reader, I personally thank you for your time. I would like to leave you with a quote from one of my favorite fictional teachers from the “Dead Poets Society” movie. John Keating, played by Robin Williams, tells his class, “When you read, don't just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think.” I strive to do this with everything I read and I hope you do too. Here’s to a great year!
