Bears of Berkley: Senior Jason Cox


Q: What’s your favorite Elective?
A: Ceramics because I really like the teacher, Mrs. Depaulis, and because I’m really passionate about art. Usually, the other mediums that I work with are different from ceramics, and I like that (with ceramics) I can do things in 3D.

Q: What piece of advice would you give to a freshman?
A: Don’t stand in the center of the T, and remember to walk…faster.

Q: What career path do you see yourself taking in the future?
A: I want to do computer science, specifically computer analyst stuff with computer systems, and if that doesn’t work, I’d be interested in entrepreneurship.

Q: If you could start any club at school, what would it be?
A: Sewing.

Q: What’s your favorite subject?
A: Science, just any science because I feel like I understand it better than other subjects, like math and English, and I’m curious about solving different things in both of my science classes.

Q: What’s one perk of being an upperclassmen?
A: I feel like people get out of my way, I feel like I can walk the halls and not have to worry about anyone else.

Q: Do you participate in any extracurricular activities outside of school?
A: I work at Panda Express, a lot. I also skateboard a lot.

Q: What’s your favorite memory from being a student at Berkley?
A: Freshman year when the seniors did that senior prank with the watermelons covered in oil. It was really funny to watch them clean it all up.

Q: Do you have any embarrassing or funny Freshman year memories?
A: One day, I spilled chocolate milk all over myself at lunch, and had to walk around with a big brown spot on my black and white striped T-shirt all day. No one would lend me their sweatshirt.
