When Gabby visited Northern for the first time, she fell in love with Marquette. In her time as a student, she has fallen in love with her construction management major. She enjoys being challenged in her classes and all of the opportunities that her education has offered her.

"This major has given me endless opportunities to further myself. I have secured internships over both summers that I have been a student at NMU that gave me experience and knowledge that greatly helped me to understand material in class. I've also found that most universities do not have the hands-on classes that we have here. One of my favorite classes was concrete; I actually got to lay brick and CMU. There's no better way to learn."
