Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering

Meet the Ambassadors


My name is Lily Drum-Parce and I am going into my senior year in Civil Engineering. I started here at CSU in 2018 after graduating from high school here in Fort Collins. I love the Fort Collins and CSU community and am passionate about being active in both. I spend a lot of my time outdoors hiking and paddleboarding. I spent my summer doing an internship at a company called Ulteig where I got to apply all of the many things I’ve learned to design power lines all over Colorado. I’m so excited for you all to start your journey here at CSU and please feel free to reach out to me any time and I’ll be happy to help you study or find fun things to do in the community

Hi there! My name is Claire Paschke and I’m a third-year student studying environmental engineering. This is my first full year as a student ambassador and I’m really excited to get to know all of you and lend a helping hand.

I’m originally from Chicago but I absolutely love living here in Fort Collins. I chose CSU because of the amazing engineering programs and because of the awesome energy on campus. Everyone is genuinely so happy to be here and eager to support you however they can! In my spare time, I love paddle boarding out on Horsetooth and catching yoga classes at the Rec. I also love hanging out all of the fun coffee shops around Fort Collins so please let me know if you ever need a recommendation!

Hello! I’m Julia Vervaecke and I am just starting my third year at CSU. I study environmental engineering and minor in environmental public health. Originally, I am from Iowa but I’ve lived here since 2019. This is my first semester as a CEE ambassador and I am so excited to step into the role. I am here if any one needs any school or life advice and I can give really killer pep talks. When I am not grinding out my engineering degree, I love long walks, thrifting, cooking, music, sour gummy candy, and being with my friends. Please reach out to me if you need anything engineering or if you just need a friend!
