Andrew Jones (President)

Major: Mechanical Engineering

About: While I’m not working on engineering tasks, I love spending time outside. I enjoy backpacking, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, and many other outdoor activities. When I graduate, I will be continuing at CSU as a masters’ student, doing research on large engines. Further on in life I don’t have a specific career goal, I just want to be in a field where I can make meaningful contributions. Ask me questions about engineering or hiking fourteeners!

Zach Lustig (Vice President)

Major: Mechanical Engineering

About: I am in my fourth and final year as a mechanical engineering student, and will continue on to graduate school to earn my Master’s degree. My interests lie in alternative energies, atmospheric research, and outdoor activities. Skiing and biking are my two favorites, and I plan to travel the world to ride everywhere possible. I aim to help preserve our environment through engineering so all of us can enjoy it for generations to come!

Dixie Poteet (Treasurer)

Major: Civil Engineering

About: I am a third year Civil Engineering Major with a Sustainable Water Interdisciplinary Minor. My priorities outside the classroom include Peer Education through CREWS, serving as President for Chi Epsilon, and telling prospective students how awesome CSU is through the Scott Scholars and WSCOE Outreach Program. I spend my free time studying in the library, working out at the Rec, or blowing off steam (sometimes literally) in the kitchen. My first time playing MineCraft was teaching a MineCraft engineering camp for fifth graders.
