Competing on Saint Lawrence University’s NCAA Division One Men’s Ice Hockey Team, Jake is also a serious and accomplished student. He was chosen for the East Coast Athletic Conference’s (ECAC) All-Academic team in the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school terms.

Jake believes college is about igniting a passion and exploring it until an idea clicks and sets you off for the rest of your life to then pursue and immerse oneself in that passion. According to Jake, St. Lawrence University has been an incredible experience, fostering both learning and personal growth.

This summer he will pursue study on the James Bay project in Northern Quebec. Jake says his economics background will provide insights into the potential effects of hydroelectric development, while his minor in Canadian Studies will provide him a basis for understanding the area and culture.
