In our Student back to school series, we profile the students of the University of Colorado Denver’s College of Architecture & Planning (CAP). We sat down with Jennifer Clegg, a student in the CAP program who will graduate with a Master of Architecture degree. We reflected on Jennifer’s summer and talked more about her hobbies, interests and internships she participated in.
