FAVORITE THING ABOUT SHIPPENSBURG:
The people. I have met a lot of
genuinely good people at Shippensburg, both my peers and the faculty. All of my professors, especially in the
Geography-Earth Science Department, have been understanding and willing to help
however they can.
TWO INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT ME:

Environmental club, helping with the campus farm, intramural basketball
I received the Jane H. Ehemann Scholarship for the
2012-2013 academic year. It has lessened
the financial burden of attending a quality university and I am sincerely
grateful for that.
I have an internship this summer doing trail maintenance with the Maine Appalachian Trail Crew.
STUDENT RESEARCH EXPERIENCE:
None as of yet but I will be assisting
with various research projects of my peers having to do with the campus farm
once that is up and running.
MOST MEANINGFUL LEARNING EXPERIENCE AT SHIP:

educational experience at Ship has been taking a winter course on the island of
Curaçao. Besides just the beautiful
Caribbean weather and scenery, it was awesome to be immersed in such a unique
and diverse culture.
COMMUNITY SERVICE/VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES:
Over the years, I have done volunteer work trips to New Orleans, West
Virginia, and Maryland and have helped at the local soup kitchen in my
hometown. Here at Ship, I have
