Huntington High School Class of 2019 salutatorian Ryan Hoffmann has decided to attend Northeastern University in the fall.
“Northeastern's setting in Boston and experiential learning opportunities made it a top choice for me, both due to my love for the city, but also from the amazing opportunities it presents for me while I’m still in college as well as after I graduate,” Mr. Hoffmann said.
Huntington Class of 2019 salutatorian Ryan Hoffmann is headed to Northeastern University in the fall.
The senior considered Case Western Reserve University, Stevens Institute of Technology and Stony Brook University before finalizing his plans to attend Northeastern.
“I plan on dual majoring in chemical engineering and mathematics,” Mr. Hoffmann said. “I’m will be in the honors program, so I hope to get especially involved in the various facets of that program, as well as the engineering societies that Northeastern available and maybe a club sport or two.”
Mr. Hoffmann is interested in a career as a chemical engineer. “Although I’m not sure what I want to do with that degree in terms of specific jobs,” he said. “At the same time, math is also very interesting to me, so I might decide to change that career come completion of my undergraduate degree and enter into some other engineering field.”
The teenager may soon be moving on to college, but he will never forget Huntington UFSD and all of his experiences through the years.
“I’ll always remember the great friends I’ve made, the connections that have developed between my peers, my teachers and myself and the fun I've had up to now.” Mr. Hoffmann said.
