Q&A with Michael Bouchard
Hometown: St. Louis, Mo.
What are you studying? I am a sophomore studying geology and geophysics.
What was your first impression of President Wolfe? He is a very engaging and personable individual who genuinely cares for the individual students and their input.
What surprised you most about President Wolfe? The day after our tour, he was announcing Missouri S&T's new chancellor, and I was playing in the Pep band. He was able to recognize me and pick my face out of the crowd.
What did President Wolfe seem most interested in during his tour? He seemed genuinely interested hearing the students' input in where they wanted to see the university system go.
What do you want him to remember most about your campus/program/etc.? That the students here are dedicated to a high standard of academic performance in STEM fields, but we also have a rich cultural impact. As a member of three bands, a lead in University Drama productions, and someone getting a language minor, I attest to the strength and quality of these programs even here on a science and technology campus.
What message would you like to leave with President Wolfe when he takes office Feb. 15th? That the students here are dedicated to a high standard of academic performance, which has grabbed international attention. However, it seems that a lot of Missourians do not know what a resource they have in Missouri S&T.
