Great Basin- a Hidden Treasure

Great Basin National Park is a hidden gem in the Department of the Interior’s crown. When I arrived in the park with six other students from universities around the country, I wasn’t prepared for what I experienced: nothing.


Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Partners in the Parks allowed us the unique opportunity to get under the surface and hear about the mountains from seasoned park stewards.


From Ferguson

Physically being in Ferguson was surreal…But finally, at the tail end of this trip, we were there, in the middle of a news story.


Volunteering with BuildOn

People raced each other to collect leaves, and some students even began to sing and dance in their native Haitian Creole.



Glacier National Park

In an increasingly globalized world, I think it is as important as ever to discover the wonders right here at home




Sequoia National Park

What wilderness is to me now, is a place free from invasive technology and free from human development.


Debating Foreign Policy at NUMAL

The knowledge I gain from debating in simulations of real-world regional and global organizations complements the courses I take every day of the week.
