Meet Jaycee Cameron

Class of 2020, chemical engineering

"I like that co-ops are mandatory at UToledo — and that they help you find them. Not all schools do that. Getting paid well is also attractive! I like working one semester and going to school the next. I’m a hands-on learner. The first semester in class after my co-op was my best because I already knew how the theory worked in real life."
