Alex Oladele, a double major in Computer Science and Software Engineering, is from Westerville, Ohio. He was nominated for his work as a resident assistant for 3 out of 4 of his years at Miami. His ability to impact and care for his residents, and his ability to go the extra mile in his work was some of the reasons he was nominated for this award. In addition, he works to be able to help speak out about the lack of diversity in Computer Science, and strives to mentor to people in marginalized communities to spread the importance of STEM.
