Evan Reed
Class of 2019 in electrical engineering | Employed at Gestamp in Troy, Mich.

"Nothing beats co-ops — to see how engineering works in the real world, get experience and earn enough to pay tuition. With all the resources UToledo offers and the high job placement rate for engineering students, it set me up for life after college. I have minimal debt."

Justin Mendoza
Class of 2022, bioengineering and Bacc2MD pre-med student | Toledo, Ohio

"When I visited UToledo, I thought the bioengineering program was ahead of its time and would allow me to pursue my passion for medicine. I applied and got into the Bacc2MD program, which guarantees me a medical school interview without taking the MCAT. It was a no-brainer. I wanted to give myself the greatest chance to become the physician that I want to be."

Megan Davidson
Class of 2019, chemical engineering | Hired by Cooper Tire and Rubber Company in Findlay, Ohio, before she graduated

"For my chemical engineering orientation class, I helped devise and build a water purification unit. After my orientation course, I became involved in Walk for Water to raise money for building and installing more purification units around the world. I traveled to El Salvador to install a unit in a health center and provide maintenance for previously installed systems. My work helping improve the lives of people in need is more important to me than any academic achievement."
