Brad James McClain
I was born in Sidney, Ohio. I lived in Sidney my whole life until I started college. I went to Sidney City Schools and later graduated from Sidney High School in June, 2008. During high school, I participated in many extracurricular activities, including soccer, student government, National Honor Society, intramural sports, and Academia. After I graduated high school, I decided to enroll at Wright State University, to major in mechanical engineering. As an engineer, I would like to eventually be promoted as a lead designer. Ten years from now, I would like to be living somewhere close to the Dayton area. One possible place of employment is Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
I enjoy a variety of music, which includes rock, rap, and some country on occasion. In my free time, I like to play video games, watch television, and hang out with my friends. My favorite tv shows are Entourage, True Blood, The Office, and That 70's Show. However, I always watch football or basketball if it's on. An example of one thing that I did this week that was nice to someone else is helping my roommate study for his math test.
I would like to dedicate this web site to my favorite janitor at Wright State University, Mark. He works very hard for his job, scrubbing toilettes extra clean.

Wow, this quarter seems like it is flying by. After last week, it is officially halfway through the quarter. Week five was another routine week, filled with many labs and homework. All together last week, I completed three engineering labs, one Calculus lab, my first engineering 101 exam, an English text analysis, and homework on top of that. Yet again, last week has proven to be another strenuous week, however, my efforts paid off. On my first exam, I received an overall score of a 92 percent. Outside of class, I also had a strenuous week. I worked out three times at the Rec Center located in the Student Union, and I also went swimming. On the weekend, I mostly did homework and hung out with my roommates.
This quarter, I am enrolled in four classes with a total of 18 credit hours. I am currently enrolled in Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications, Academic Reading and Writing, Calculus 1, and Fundamentals of Engineering and Computer Science. In my engineering courses, we have covered derivatives, statics problems, basic circuits, and intermediate physics problems. Currently in Engineering 190, we are learning how to create web pages using html programming. My grade point average last quarter was a 3.437; this quarter, I have improved maintaining A's in three of my classes with only one B.

This quarter, campus life is much different than during fall quarter. Campus is much less populated, due to students taking the tunnels to avoid cold weather. I live in Cimarron Woods, an apartment complex directly off campus. Since it is still Winter, I drive to campus rather than walking. Campus life is one of my favorite things about Wright State University. Living close to campus gives me the opportunity to use WSU's many facilities.
