Check out some 🍭 #SWEetWisdom 💡 from Danielle Schroeder, Associate Engineer at @Pennoni !
Q: How did you approach your college search and decide where to apply and ultimately attend?
A: I approached the college search in two main steps. Late into my junior year, I decided that I wanted to study Civil Engineering, so my first step was to research schools that have that major. I also wanted to stay relatively local, so that also helped me to narrow down my search. After that, my second step was to use that curated list to schedule campus visits. I was able to get a better idea if a school would be a good fit for me through talking with the current students, visiting the dorms, and learning more about the unique programs each school offers. I ultimately choose to attend Drexel University for their elite co-op program, the professors and current students I met, and the vast opportunities that the school offered (like joining Drexel SWE).
M.S. in Civil Engineering, Drexel University
