In their own words, they tell about their experiences at SUNY Brockport.
My name is Jessica Martin. I'm an Honors freshman here at Brockport and a member of the Green House Living and Learning Community. I'm from Buffalo, NY and attended City Honors School in Buffalo. I grew up traveling nationally and internationally, and have been exposed to the many natural wonders in America's National Parks system. I also travelled to Australia and New Zealand when I was 13 with the People to People Student Ambassador Program. I am interested in the natural sciences (environmental science and ecology) mainly because I was taught to appreciate these finite resources, and I seek to share these wonders with others around me while helping them understand that these things should never be taken for grantee. I would like to pursue a career in Conservation Biology or in the humanities to assist in population control and wildlife control. Therefore, I sought out this program to teach me these things and more so that I am prepared to teach others in the present and future about the imperative need to protect and maintain the planet's resources, while reaching and maintaining a decent quality of life for fellow humans in America and in struggling third world countries.
Hello, my name is Alisha Mong and I live in Webster, New York. I originally grew up in the state of Ohio and graduated from High School there with Honors. I am an only child, but have two cats that I consider to be like my siblings.
I am attending SUNY Brockport to major in Environmental Science, leaning towards the aquatic field of study. The reason I chose this field of study was to learn more about the environment, interact with the surrounding ecosystem, and help it out in any way I can.
