Geek of the Week: Jake Larson

Jake Larson, a senior in Geophysics, has a wide variety of talents and hobbies outside of engineering. This month, The Oredigger sat down with Jake and had the opportunity to learn about everything from his favorite rock climbing locations, to his unique plans as a geophysics major, to his tips and tricks for living a…


Geek of the Week: Deborah Good, Engineering Physics Senior

After two months at Mines, senior Deborah Good knew she wanted to some day be the Geek of the Week. However, in those two months Good began writing for The Oredigger, and then became an editor and finally was selected as editor-in-chief for the 2013-2014 school year. She always saw her being Geek of the Week as a conflict of interest, but the dream lived on. Now that Good has completed her editor-in-chief duties and is preparing to graduate, that dream can finally come true.


GOTW: Colton Bigler, Senior, Physics

Last week, the Oredigger caught up with someone just getting into the physics major, which is exciting, but it is also fun to pick the brain of someone who has been through it all. This week, Colton Bigler found time to talk about what he will be doing next at University of Arizona, his love of Captain America, and the best things about Mines.


Geek of the Week: Libby Booton

Juggling two jobs, multiple clubs and cheerleading with Mines coursework is no easy feat. Arvada native and Mines sophomore in Engineering Physics Libby Booton does just that. Booton works as a TA for Physics 100 and teaches dance to children at the APEX center in Arvada. Between practices for the Mines Cheerleading team and meetings for various on-campus clubs, The Oredigger caught up with Libby to discuss her geekiness and love for Mines.


Geek of the Week: Anna Bond

Some geeks are obsessed and fascinated by their studies, and some have watched Star Wars countless times. Anna Bond is both. In her third year at Mines, she seems to have found true geophysical happiness as classes have grown more interesting for her, fulfilling some curiosity that has been in her heart from a young age. Between leadership meetings for the Alpha Phi sorority and deriving the telegrapher’s equation for a magnetic field, The Oredigger caught up with Anna to talk about her geekiness that may not be well-known.
