"I value the close-knitenvironment that the department generates among its students, due in large part to the Green Learning Community. The smaller class sizes also contribute to greater participation and attention, which can lead to stronger relationships with classmates and professors. I am grateful for the diverse classes offered within the department and the associated opportunities available to Environmental Studies students. [Students should] take advantage of the various study abroad opportunities. There are several classes offered with end of the semester travel, as well as semesters that can be spent abroad. The value of experience is immeasurable. You can also pursue your environmental interests on campus. There are great research and internship options available, as well as clubs to join. If you have a new idea in mind, you can propose it. You can make it happen."
