adam lesnikowski.jpgAdam Lesnikowski ’04 (LaSalle Academy) is graduating this year from Harvard University with an A.B. in Philosophy and Mathematics. He will attend graduate school next year and is in the process of deciding between two programs: a Ph.D. program in “Logic, Methodology, and Computation” in the philosophy department at Carnegie Mellon University; and a “Huygens Scholarship Program” grant from the Dutch government to pursue an M.Sc. degree in logic at the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation at the University of Amsterdam.

“I had a good experience as a Crusader,” says Adam. “I am very grateful to have received a Crusade Scholarship for my first three years of college. This allowed me to focus more time on academics rather than working.” He appreciates the experience he had in college, including the friends he made, the professors he learned from, and the summer programs he attended. “I also studied mathematics in Budapest, Hungary, for a semester,” he adds. “It was an eye-opening experience I will never forget.”

Adam’s advice for Crusaders who are starting college in the fall is to explore as much as possible. “Take classes in a lot of different areas,” he says. “You never know what will be interesting to you. College is probably the first time you will be away from family, teachers, and friends telling you what to do. You should follow what excites you as much as possible.”

For the past two summers Adam has worked at a camp for science and math students in West Virginia. In his free time, he enjoys playing basketball and soccer, traveling, and making music and movies.
