The Marauder experience
My favorite thing about CSU is how connected we are. There are a lot of networking opportunities and alumni that connect with the student body to provide internships and even jobs when we graduate.

I envision using my knowledge and experience to push the world into a better and safer place, that's provided a sustainable, affordable, and accessible lifestyle for everyone. An engineer's job/code is to protect the environment and the apple in it at all costs, and I intend on doing so.
