Meghan Graber


Meghan Graber is currently a fifth year senior at The Pennsylvania State University. In May 2009, she will graduate with a bachelor's degree in Architectural Engineering with a focus in the construction management option. Meghan is a well-rounded individual who has been a member of several student organizations and sports teams including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Student Chapter of the Partnership for Achieving Construction Excellence (S:PACE), the Women and Engineering Program (WEP), the Penn State Crew Team, and the Wakeboarding and Waterskiing Team. She has also received the honor of being inducted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).

In the summer of 2007, Meghan spent seven weeks studying abroad in Rome, Italy. She completed twelve credits of architectural design, architectural history, and other related courses. This was not only an academic experience for her, but a cultural one as well. By completing these credits along with a few other AE required courses, Meghan has obtained an Architectural Studies Minor.

Last summer, Meghan was a managerial intern for Gilbane Building Company, a highly recognized, family owned, construction management firm. She worked on a laboratory addition and renovation project at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. This was a valuable opportunity for Meghan to get out on site and gain experience in her field. She would like to use the practices and skills she learned and apply them to her thesis and career.
