“I think from a student perspective the most important aspect of sustainability is student involvement. When we do the plant starts in the spring, for kids to even watch a seed turn into a plant…I think it’s really cool…So the educational opportunity behind all the sustainable things on campus for students is huge.”
“An internship proved to be paramount to my learning in school and beyond. Even a few hours a week can open your eyes to what it really means to work in the field. I’ve found that a college education can teach you how to study and learn, but nothing compares to what you can gain from on-the-job training.”
“The Communication Studies professors not only encourage you to succeed in classes, but they also want you to succeed in life by supporting your obligations outside of class, such as work and community involvement.”

“Experiencing a different culture… not being able to speak the language, not being able to take for granted how easy I have it (here in the U.S.), I think everyone should experience that because it was a great learning opportunity.”
“Overall, my largest takeaway is the enjoyment I get from conversing with people all over the world. It’s interesting to hear their way of life, their cuisine, life, culture…you name it, it’s all amazing.”
