Student Ambassadors

Environmental Sciences Student Ambassadors are motivated and scholarly ES students who are dedicated to representing the program on campus and in the community. These students serve as liaisons between the ES Program and prospective students and their families, the campus community, guests of honor, and more. ES Student Ambassadors are more than willing to answer any questions you may have about the program or NCSU.     

Our Ambassadors have a diverse range of focal areas and skill sets but they all share the Environmental Science major.

Meet your 2013 - 2014 ES Student Ambassadors:

ES Focal Area: Environmental Toxicology
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I am interested in the role of environmental science in understanding and preserving nature, as well as improving the health of humans and ecosystems. This program offers opportunities to explore my interests and passions, as well as providing a solid science background.  The Environmental Science community has a supportive atmosphere of friendly and accommodating professors and advisors.

ES Focal Area: Marine Sciences
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I choose to study ES because of the freedom in selecting a focal area with the major while still achieving a strong scientific background coupled with the incorporation of politics, communication, and analysis behind environmental issues. My passions for marine science, conservation and sustainability fit right into place with this major.

ES Focal Area: Biotechnology
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I grew up with a passion for the environment. I know that Environmental Science is a major that I can make a difference with in the world. It is something that will make me want to go to work because I know that every hour of my job makes an impact. Even just talking to people about the knowledge I have gained makes a difference. Knowledge is power!

ES Focal Area: Chemistry
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I decided to study ES here at NCSU because it allows flexibility and offers a wide variety of opportunities to learn. I am also studying Chemistry here, and I love that the ES program makes it possible to pursue both degrees by including a focal area. It is interesting to meet with other ES students and learn what their focal areas are, because they are all so different. The ES major offers students a unique opportunity to customize their studies, which is hard to find in other majors.

ES Focal Area: Business Administration
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
It is my career goal to change the world in sustainable environmental management and educate the public of environmental issues. After taking several courses through NC State, I found that my niche lies within the majors of Environmental Sciences and Science, Technology, and Society.  This coupling allows me to explore different research components of environmental issues as well as have an understanding of how policy is created and implemented.

ES Focal Area: Undecided
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I’ve always had a passion for nature and the environment and I want to help inspire others to love and protect it as I do! I’m yet unsure of a career path, but I figured that environmental science was a great program with lots of options and paths I could pursue so I could figure out just what I want to do.

ES Focal Area: Alternative Energies
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I want to work in the area of Alternative Energies to promote diversifying power grids, to integrate more environmentally friendly options, and to educate others about the need for a change in the way we power our lives! The ES Program allows me to achieve my goals. It is structured enough to grant a well-rounded knowledge based in many departments on campus, while providing a focal area so that each student can tailor the major to their individual need. None of us are the same, ES enables and supports those differences.

ES Focal Area: Design Studies
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I searched through countless universities across the state for the most comprehensive Environmental Science program.  I chose NC State for the interdisciplinary approach of the program, the diversity on campus, the interconnectedness of the university and professors with research/internship opportunities with diverse firms across the Research Triangle, and for the passion and progressive attitude of Dr. Winner.

ES Focal Area: Wildlife Sciences
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I decided to study Environmental Science here at NC State because there is so many things happening that are affecting our environment in negative ways such as global warming and pollution.  I believe that with a study in environmental science I can make a change.  Yes, I’m just one person so it might not be a big change, but it is still a change.

ES Focal Area: Undecided
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I have always enjoyed learning about how the systems of the world operate simultaneously to create a functioning planet.  Throughout high school, I competed in local, regional, state, and even international science fair competitions (ISEF).  These experiences really sparked my scientific interests. The environmental science program here at N.C. State is very research-based, which was what really brought me to realize my aspirations of doing research in my future career and endeavors.

ES Focal Area: Wildlife Sciences
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
Environmental Science gives me the opportunity to build a program of study that I am interested in. It also focuses on the way we affect the earth and how we can create a better future. By studying Environmental Science I feel like I can save the world.

ES Focal Area: Soil Science
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
I took AP Environmental Science in high school and since then I knew I wanted to learn as much as I could about it in college, and I like the different areas you can focus on with this degree.

ES Focal Area: Environmental Management Policy
I study Environmental Sciences at NC State because:
it is my passion. I like being a part of the ES family. ES allows me the freedom and flexibility to find who I am and what I am meant to be. This program gives me the opportunity to learn, find creative and innovative solutions to our problems, to improve the human experience while reducing our environmental impact, and because we are living on a finite planet with limited resources, and we have a responsibility to keep those resources protected and sustained.
