Name/Role at OUE:
Rob Rogers, Jr.
Assistant Director for Experiential Education
Center for Career Discovery & Development
Years at Tech/Previous Roles:
16 years at Georgia Tech in various roles as a co-op and internship advisor. I have been in my current role as Assistant Director for Experiential Education for about two years.
Favorite thing to do outside of work:
Play golf, but I am not that good. They are garden tools in my hands but I do so enjoy digging up a good golf course! I am trying to learn how to cook. I enjoy restaurants, theatre, musical events and anything related to science fiction and travel.
Hidden talent/something interesting about yourself:
I can juggle! I can also spin objects on a finger! But not that the same time, it’s either or, but if you are patient I can show you both. It’s great for dinner parties! Well not really but it is something interesting and maybe a talent?
If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?
My bucket list place to visit is Lake Como because I get to see Switzerland and Italy. Those are two countries that are on my list of places to visit.
