I am a senior in Environmental Studies with a minor in Sustainable Systems. This is my first year in the office as the Energy Conservation Intern. Last year, I was the president of the Student Sustainability Club. It was awesome. The reason why I got involved with sustainability because I love science, the outdoors, USU, and I want to help USU become more earth friendly..
