Gustavus Career

Ben Started his studies at Gustavus Adolphus College in the fall of 2008. He did not know what classes he wanted to take when he went down to register over the summer, but fortunately was helped by Mike Hvidsten, a professor in the Math and Computer Science department. Due to Mike's influence Ben decided to try his hand at Computer Science and hasn't looked back since.


Though Ben does enjoy writing the occasional program outside of class he has also been kept busy as a four year varsity athlete on the Gustavus Swim Team.
