Vice-President

Mehul is a junior in Computer Science and Plan II from Irving, Texas. After graduation, Mehul has his eyes set on becoming a software engineer. In his free time, Mehul is a part of Texas Code Orange which is an organization that aims to tackle the issue of Digital Divide here in Austin through mentorship and
computer science education for children.

His advice for new students is to find someone on campus and just talk to them because that is all it takes. You will probably see Mehul zooming past you on campus on his Razor Scooter.
