Civil Engineering

Amy Larabee

Class of 2008
Civil Eingineering Major

Amy came to Merrimack knowing she wanted to major in civil engineering, and that she would to play field hockey. What she didn’t know is that she would find her spiritual interests as well.

Though being a civil engineering major and college athlete has kept Amy quite busy, she found the time and passion to develop her spirit along with her mind.

By attending a religious ceremony on campus, Amy discovered that she wanted to make her spiritual participation official. In her freshman year, she made her first communion and was confirmed in the Church of Christ the Teacher at Merrimack.

“The great thing about Merrimack is that spiritually, you can be involved as much or as little as you want,” said Amy. “There is plenty of opportunity right on campus.”

Beyond her interest in traffic and geotechnical engineering, Amy makes it a priority to expand her spiritual horizons on and off campus. She was a regular participant on Merrimack’s spiritually-based M.O.R.E retreats and also volunteered in Chicago and Virginia with the college’s annual Alternative Spring Break. Above all, Amy’s spirit was made stronger by the connections she made at Merrimack.

“I have only met quality people at Merrimack,” said Amy. “My classmates became my best friends and I will continue to stay in touch with them after college.”
