Student Experiences

Meral Sarper
Mechanical Engineering Class of 2014
"There's a ripple effect that happens when you follow your passion. UCCS is where it all started for me. I went in with everything and it really worked out. I had to be a risk taker and follow my heart."
As a young student, Meral Sarper was heavily impacted when she saw the amount of trash the campus community at UCCS produces. That set her career path in the field of engineering in motion.
