  1. Erick Guaman

    My name is Erick Guaman this is my second semester in NYCT what made me chose my major was my childhood growing up playing with legos building stuff and coming from a family involved in construction around me. It was nice seeing buildings develop and the work put into them. I enjoy the movies, basketball, and in my free time I have a small business reselling sneakers and vintage stuff.

  2. Cindy Cuanetl R

    Hi my name is Cindy. I am in the B tech program and debating on whether I should apply fro the B arch program. I chose to pursue a career with architecture because of an art history class I took in high school. Learning about art pieces and structures sparked my interest in architecture. In my free time I like to do nothing and relax. I started painting about a year ago but I don’t do it consistently.

  3. Gustavo Madrigal

    Hello, My name Is Gustavo Madrigal. I am currently in the Associate’s program but looking forward to applying for the B Tech or B Arch program. The reason I chose to pursue a career in architecture is that when I was in high school I was introduced to a software program where we made a bridge and tested if the bridge could hold. I was intrigued and decided to try other software such as AutoCAD which really hooked me onto how a building is designed. When I’m not doing school work I like to stay home and just chill with my dog.

What I like to do in my spare time is either chill at home or I would go out to a soccer field and play there. Soccer is my favorite sport. I’m not a fan of the software Rhino.
