My name is Nick Demars, and I am a mechanical engineering major, halfway through my third year. I am originally from Everett, Washington, about 20 miles north of Seattle. I pursued engineering because I have always enjoyed making things and figuring out how things worked. When I was younger I enjoyed fiddling with bicycles and other things, and I’d like to be able to do that as a career.
I came to Boise state originally for a handful of reasons. One of the major ones was the engineering program. I also came and walked on to the track and field team, throwing the shot put (a 16 pound steel ball). I competed on the
Bronco track team for two years before deciding to pursue other interests. Most days when I am not busy with my engineering work, I enjoy being in the outdoors skiing, biking, and hiking.
