The most exciting thing about the earth and environmental science major—which I chose because of my interest in making the world greener and fighting climate change—is that the classes open your eyes to the intricate processes of the environment. My favorite class has been Meteorology because I am able to take what I learn in class and see a direct correlation when I step outside.
I have made meaningful connections with all of my teachers in the EES department. Because the class sizes are so small, it's really easy to get the one-on-one help from your professor that you would not get at a state school. The strong relationships with my professors have helped me to excel at Susquehanna and prepare me for life after college.
Besides the small teacher to student ratio, the ability to play lacrosse and football at a competitive level attracted me to Susquehanna. In getting to play my favorite sports in a university environment, I am learning to master the skill of multi-tasking.
This summer, I plan to join an environmental consulting firm for fracking and Chesapeake Bay environmental issues in the mid-Atlantic.
