Environmental Systems & Sustainability

Congratulate yourself for making it through a bizarre period in history. Be proud of what you have accomplished, keep reaching, and never stop improving yourself and the world around you. The world is crowded, remember that you share this space with other people and organisms, respect them and honor your part in a bigger system.

Favorite Time at SCSU

This university introduced me to an array of local organizations that I will stay involved with. I enjoyed working with groups around CT that are making a difference in this state, this region, and this city; joining in that effort, and sharing this with other students was the best part my time at SCSU.

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I will miss seeing friends near campus in Westville. I will feel lost without the awesome crew at STEM-IL.
