For Alexia, choosing a college major couldn’t have been simpler. Fascinated with physics and math in high school, Alexia grew up watching tons of new construction projects take shape all around her in Rwanda’s capital city. Now, she’s building the knowledge and experience she’ll need to take part in the fast-paced world of building as a civil engineer. After choosing RWU for the friendly community and small class sizes, Alexia has discovered so much more during her time on campus. She’s active with the Multicultural Student Union and this year became the secretary for RWU’s chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). But her favorite thing on campus? The food – Alexia recommends the stir fry!
