Mitchell Wilbur

Mitchell says many of the things that helped him excel in his academics at UNK revolved around his involvement in his fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, and the Construction Management Organization. Mitchell competed several times in Associated Schools of Construction and the National Association of Home Builders Residential Construction Competitions. Mitchell greatly appreciates the Construction Management program. He has consistently found himself ahead of other interns he’s worked with because the program is part of the College of Business and Technology rather than a College of Engineering.
