Andrew Chun '12 - Government & Law major, Environmental Science minor
"I have always been intrigued by the law, so I decided to major in government and wanted to focus specifically on environmental law/policy. Having a strong science background makes it that much easier for me to understand some of the issues that we are facing today, so it has helped me immensely in understanding flaws within various laws..."
Carly Feiro '12 - Biology major, Environmental Science minor
"I am currently working as an Environmental Education and Outreach Assistant for Washington AmeriCorps. I really just want to work outside and be involved in the environment. I've grown up with my father being a forester and going to work with him out in the woods everyday, so I have wanted to work outside ever since I could remember."
Alec Bernstein '11 - Civil & Environmental Engineering major, Environmental Science minor
"Flooding has become an issue that I am particularly interested and passionate about. After seeing some pretty devastating floods in rural Honduras that have the potential to destroy communities, I sought to find out what I can do to help better predict and warn people about these floods..."
Cara Lyons '11 - Civil & Environmental Engineering major, Environmental Science minor
"The environmental issues I’m most passionate about have evolved around sustainability. I first took the VAST Sustainability of Built Systems, which was an introduction of the topic, and I’ve further explored sustainability through EXCEL Research."
Bryan McAtee '11 - Geology & Environmental Geosciences major, Environmental Science minor
"One of the things that I find attractive about geology is that it involves studying the earth with a very holistic approach. It’s important to be able to connect the biosphere to the hydrosphere to the lithosphere, and the ES minor has been a great way to synthesize the wealth of information that pertains to each of these disciplines."
Daniel Miller '11 - Civil & Environmental Engineering major, Environmental Science minor
"I grew up in Maryland and have always had a connection to the Chesapeake Bay. Throughout my younger years in school we would take trips to the Bay and study it in school projects, which is where I learned about the Bay's problem with having poor water quality..."
Victoria Pocius '11 - Biology major, Environmental Science minor
"Right now, I'm really concerned about the Marcellus Shale drilling taking place in PA. I'm interested in this issue specifically because gas companies have started to purchase mineral rights from land owners near my home town...I would love to work for an environmental firm doing ecology consulting after graduation."
Kelsey Slater '11 - Environmental Studies major, History minor
"I have always been personally concerned about the deforestation of the world’s forests. I think that my feelings about deforestation have stemmed from watching my hometown become subject to over development...It is our job as stewards of the earth to protect these natural areas, and I have realized that is does not mean just in my own backyard."
Matthew Zwingraf '11 - Engineering Studies major, Environmental Science minor
"During my semester abroad in New Zealand in spring 2010 with Frontiers Abroad, I participated in a five week earth systems science field camp, learning about geology, geography, sustainability, and the cultural influence of indigenous peoples with the environment...I really enjoyed it and learned a great deal being immersed the field."
