Staff Profile: Andy Goga

The Staff Profile series is a new feature at Onward State. Each Friday, we will provide a window into the life of one Onward Stater. Readers: meet our writers.

Andy Goga, a senior writer, has shared his skills with Onward State since January 2009. He radiates brilliant ideas like fireworks and has written about nearly every topic imaginable.

Andy hails from New Kensington, a small city north of Pittsburgh, and he graduated from Burrell High School in 2008. A sophomore, he majors in Community, Environment, and Development, with a focus in environmental economics. In addition, he minors in English and geography.

On campus, Andy participates in Eco-Action, the Vegetarian Club, Fresh START, and is a member of the Schreyer Honors College. He enjoys reading books, riding bikes, growing beards, and talking to strangers. On a daily basis, he contemplates society, nature, and the universe, as well as his position within these aggregates.

Andy is completing a service learning project in India this summer and hopes to study abroad in South Africa next spring. He may attend graduate school, and he strives to gain knowledge and improve the world.

Some words of wisdom: “Hello, this is a message from the past to the future.”
