 Elizabeth StagnaroElizabeth Stagnaro, a sustainable planning and urban design major from Colorado Springs, plans to enjoy the outdoors while volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.

 Elizabeth StagnaroThe past four years have been a wild ride, but I wouldn’t have wanted to do it anywhere else or with anyone else!

What inspired you to come to ENVD?
I always wanted to do something in design, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do. From experimenting on architecture, landscape architecture, planning and product design to working on real-world projects, I knew I would love the school. I remember touring ENVD for the first time and being so excited for the praxis semester, at that moment I knew I had found the place I would spend the next four years. What I didn’t know is that I had just found another home and a new family. 

What will you miss the most?
I will miss the people. ENVD has such a beautiful community with amazing people and knowing that I won’t get to be with those people five days a week, breaks my heart.

Favorite memory?
During my freshman year, my friends and I would camp out in The SPACE, work on studio, watch movies and eat popcorn.

What are your plans beyond graduation?
I will be enjoying the outdoors and planning to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
