Engaged Learning in Action

Meet Iddrisu.

Scholarships have enabled him to get an excellent education while making the most of the engaged learning opportunities at CSU. A senior in the Fenn College of Engineering, he's traveled to Belize to help in the construction of a school. He's held two co-op positions, is currently building a chainless bicycle as part of his senior project and interns at a local engineering firm.

"When I'm successful, I plan to give a lot of money for scholarships to help other students," he said.
