Eliana Taylor, Bachelor of Engineering, Environmental Engineering

 In the 11th grade, I took a campus tour at U of G. I fell in love with the campus, the sense of community, the facilities, and of course, the food. I chose environmental engineering because of my appreciation for the environment. One thing that I love about my program is the amount of hands-on lab work that I do.
