Rudi Zipter

Senior power trader | BP | Class of 1991

After a few months of long walks from class to class, Rudi Zipter wised up. 

"I bought a Yamaha Razz and I remember putting 5,000 miles on it throughout undergraduate studies," says the says BP senior power trader and Class of '91 grad. "I would even drive it in the middle of nasty, cold winter days just to avoid the long campus walk.

“My other favorite memory was drinking a flaming, volcano drink at House of Chin during my senior year with Scot Mazur and other Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity brothers. There was a sign there — ‘Money talk, (BS) walk.’

"I still use that phrase on occasion.”
