Silver City native graduates with high honors from Adams State University

ALAMOSA, CO. (June 28, 2022) – Daniel Gruszka plans to pursue his Master of Science in mathematics at Western Washington University after completing his Bachelor of Science in mathematics at Adams State University, in Colorado. He graduated magna cum laude at the 2022 spring commencement ceremony.

“I have always felt that my major professors have my best interest in mind. In my senior year I had good connections with them so I was able to ask for advice on my future and get their expertise. This helped a lot when deciding to go to graduate school.”

Gruszka received the Porter Scholarship as well as the Loser Family Scholarship and the vice-president’s scholarship. In the summer of 2021, he participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) internship. He has been a mathematics tutor and a resident assistant. Gruszka graduated in four years debt-free.

“Working as an RA has given me relationships with the housing staff members and they have always been supportive of my goals and accomplishments. Also working in the STEM Center my boss, Angela Sandy, has been very supportive. She has always given me advice and support to help me succeed.”

He was involved in an impromptu math club. “I have become more confident in who I am, personally and academically.”
