My freshman year, I decided to enroll in an introductory geology class out of curiosity for the unique subject. I love the outdoors because I have been a Girl Scout since I was in Kindergarten. I had also joined a rock climbing team in high school and had fallen in love with the sport. While taking Environmental Geology, I immediately fell in love with the material! After taking various other courses in the spring of my freshman year, I realized I had no interest in English or History. In the fall of my sophomore year, I made the decision to declare my major as Geology after only one short week of starting Dynamic Earth. 

I am currently studying abroad at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia and am enrolled in 3 geology courses. These three courses include field trips which will be a great way to go into the field and discover the geology of Australia. One class I am particularly excited about is Coral Reef Geomorphology since this is a class I can only take in Australia. Upon returning to St. Lawrence my senior year, I will continue with classes to finish my major. Hopefully, when I return, I will have a better idea of what I would like to do as a career after college.
