"I started college thinking I wanted be a biology teacher, but within the first week at Green Bay, I began to learn about botany and more about our ecosystem. It was just the excitement I saw in my professors. It really fired me up. It’s amazing to think I wanted to be an ecologist and I’m actually there. It’s definitely a good feeling."
