Starting robotics freshman year, the people and places were unfamiliar. Our team wasn't close and group meetings were often awkward. But one day, another team brought in a little dinosaur stuffed animal. His name was Sammy. Our team wanted one too. We thought about it for a long time and decided on a little lion. We named him Vijay Gupta, Vi for short. So how does all this relate to robotics? Well, Vi is like our mascot and a symbol of the first time our team did something together. He's an embodiment of our team and what it stands for. Lions are loyal, strong, and disciplined. Now our team is closer than ever. And to think it all started with a little lion named Vi.
