Building the way

From relationships to bridges, Kevin McKeon moves the world forward with what he builds.

As a resident assistant in Cary Quadrangle, he also molds the character of first-year students. As a civil engineering major, he creates the structures that will sustain our future.

"I've always wanted to be involved with construction and the multitude of things that goes along with it, and felt that a degree in civil engineering would give me the most opportunities," he says.

And he's made the most of those opportunities. Kevin completed an internship with PCL Construction in Minneapolis, serving as a project engineer on the team responsible for a $3.2 million casino renovation.
