UNE Experience

"The things I like most about the environmental studies department at UNE are the professors and the closeness of the department… I was able to do two personalized directed studies because of UNE’s small class sizes.

"Through the internship program in the department I was able to get credit for an internship I started at the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services in the Limnology Center. This internship turned into a full-time summer job and has introduced me to the rewarding experience of working for a state agency.

"I was given the opportunity to be a teacher’s assistant for the conservation and preservation field lab. I feel that this was an experience I would not have had if I had attended another university. I worked on a directed study with Pam Morgan where I did a vegetative analysis of the plants on UNE’s 369 acres of undeveloped property. I also helped Professor Morgan with a research project that focuses on the Saco River salt marshes. These opportunities have been very important to my professional development, because I received experiences that future employers are going to find valuable."
