Crystal Bell Shines in Parks and Beyond
Meet Parks College civil engineering senior, Crystal Bell.
Crystal came to SLU from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since arriving at SLU, not only has Crystal been an outstanding student, but she has participated in a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Among these activities is Billikens for Clean Water. With the group, Crystal has traveled to Belize and spent time visiting several Mayan communities in the Toledo district. There, they met with community leaders, tested samples from their water sources and analyzed the need for clean drinking water. On subsequent trips, Crystal and the group have been able to provide clean water solutions for some of the communities in the region.
Over the summer Crystal worked as a Project Management Intern for Alberici Constructors. This opportunity took her to Atlanta, Georgia for the summer where she assisted in the management of constructing a $131 million-dollar wastewater reclamation facility. She got to facilitate the design revision process, produce preliminary designs for aspects of the biological treatment, and analyze production rates and financial budget.
