Choosing Mount Union
My brother had attended Mount, and I knew they had a great engineering program. It feels like a second home here because of the community. That would be my advice to those who are looking to pick a college, find a place that is like home. When you become a student, make an effort to be a part of the community.
I chose civil engineering as my major because I like to work with my hands, and it is a fun career path. The hands-on labs have been my favorite part of Mount Union. I also enjoy having professors that I can form a good relationship with. The Integrative Core was challenging, but I am glad to have completed it. It is nice that instead of taking a class focused on speaking and writing, Mount Union students can take interesting course to improve those skills. My career goal is to become a surveyor or project manager. Mount Union is pushing me to be my best and develop the necessary leadership skills.
