DIG DEEPER

As a senior environmental chemistry major, I had to work on my thesis, in the lab, full time during J Term. I've been conducting a geochemical study of the Ouleout Creek since fall 2012 with funding from the EPA. I have greatly enjoyed working in the field to collect my samples, but working in the lab all day every day during J Term was very hard for me. I'm an outdoors person who also loves interacting with people. Even learning what you don't like can help shape your future. My J Term experience has pointed me in the direction of looking at jobs that will put me in the field, not a lab.
