Алекса је стигао до Принстона, али Математичкој гимназији се радо враћа

По завршетку Математичке гимназије Алекса Милојевић је наставио студије математике на америчком Принстону. Сваки боравак у Београду користи да се види са друговима из генерације и да помогне школи коју је похађао.

Између Кембриџа, МИТ-а и Принстона, одабрао је Принстон. Каже да се ту учи најбоља математика.

"Прва година на Принстону је јако интересантна. Посебно зато што је сад прекинута овом пандемојом, па смо другу половину другог семастра имали онлајн и све испите смо полагали онлајн, тако да је то било једно занимљиво искуство. Али мислим да су услови били фер. У том смислу да смо сви имали подједнаке услове учења", каже Алекса Милојевић.

Наравно, положио је све испите из прве године. Објашњава како изгледа један дан на факултету.

"То је један кампус на коме сте од мензе пет минута ходом, од учионице исто толико, малтене цео дан и цео живот вам се претварају некако у тај рад и то учење. Цела ситуација је толико интегрисана, ту су и часови и професоре можете да сретнете испред своје спаваонице и где год, тако да ми се чини да је то један систем потпуно посвећен учењу", истиче Милојевић.

Сваки боравак у Београду користи да сачува контакт са школом и да помогне.

"Па сад када сам се вратио узео сам да помогнем мало око смишљања задатака за Куп Математичке гимназије. Како су некада људи смишљали задатке за такмичења на која сам ја ишао, онда тако сад ја смишљам за ове млађе нараштаје и мислим да се то некако окреће, враћамо дуг", наводи Милојевић.

Каже да је Принстон због актуелне здравствене ситуације оформио комитет који би требало да одлучи да ли се студенти враћају или не. Одговор би ускоро требало да стигне.
