Paras Gupta 

My name is Paras Gupta, and I am your Martel President!

Rice isn’t too far from home for me, I was born and raised here in Houston,
Texas in an area known as Cypress. I’m studying Chemical and Biomolecular
engineering, and I hope to attend medical school shortly after graduating
with Rice’s Class of 2021!

I spend a lot of my time at the recreation center, either playing basketball
for hours or practicing with my dance team. If not there, I could be at
Coffeehouse getting my caffeine fix, or at the Hoot grabbing a snack from
one of my best friends who works there. Most of my time, I’m at Martel
spending time at home with my family. I’m either spending time getting to
know Martelians better, or meeting with those who can help improve Martel.
If you ever want to talk about anything, that’s what I’m here for and I promise
you that I am happy to!

I’m super excited to meet all of you and am so glad that you’re coming to
Martel, the best college ever. My past few years here have truly made me love
this college, and I hope that after O-Week, you’ll be able to say the same. I’ve
made countless memories here and I couldn’t imagine my college journey
without Martel.

Can’t wait for y’all to start yours,
