Thesis Reflection
Overall, the most beneficial aspect of completing my senior thesis has been the ability to apply concepts learned throughout my five years at Penn State. Applying what I have learned in my structures courses, especially, resulted in a deeper understanding of structures. Using knowledge gained from material in a variety of different classes aided in a fuller understanding of the relationship individual course concepts have with one another. On top of that, I gained the ability to better consider constructability and cost impacts of the structural design.

CPEP Reflection
Completion of the CPEP website proved valuable for a variety of reasons. It provided a means to represent myself and my work professionally online as well as a convenient way to share my progress with professionals and family. Additionally, having access to the CPEP sites of previous years has been extremely beneficial in seeking guidance and inspiration in completing my own thesis.

Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work‐in‐progress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Caroline Klatman. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.
