Ritvik (Class of 2022) is from Robbinsville, NJ and plans on studying Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
As a first year student, he is involved with Engineers Without Borders, E-Club, Make Ventures Princeton, Forbes College Council, Club Powerlifting, and UN Ivy League STEM Initiative.
When asked why he wanted to be a CA Fellow, Ritvik said, "Personally, as an incoming freshman, the social scene at Princeton remained a mystery to me. My CA experience gave me insight into the friendly and cordial nature I would experience during my time here, and I am grateful for this insight. To extend my gratitude, I decided to become a CA fellow and focus on comforting incoming freshman and addressing any concerns they have coming in."
Memorable CA moment as a first-year: "At PEEC [Poconos Environmental Education Center], a friendly truth-or-dare game resulted in me having to do push-ups every time our group heard anyone sneeze. Of course, my entire CA group learned a trick to sneeze at will, and I had to do pushups during presentations, on nature trails, and on a moving bus."
Favorite space on campus: "Julian Street Library; the color is very soothing, it's a great study space, and I practically live in the studio in the back."
Fun Fact: "My last name is engraved on a LIDAR laser in space."
