Why Reid Chose His Major: "I have always been intrigued by math, science, and engineering classes. While looking at different majors, I remembered my favorite High School elective: economics.  Economics ties into Industrial and Systems Engineering so I decided it would be a better fit. Upon further research I found that a double major in Economics would be difficult, but possible; I always like a challenge. "
