Current Student
I love Civil Engineering and the fact that I was able to start engineering classes in my freshman year. I recently added a double major in Sustainability Studies, and this has allowed me to see what I want truly want to do for the rest of my life. With these two degrees, I will be able to pursue Sustainable Engineering.
