Welcome our newest student blogger, Ashley Robin'13. I'm currently doing an interdisciplinary major with environmental studies and geology and I plan on minoring in African Studies. I just returned from the Adirondack semester, where I lived with 11 other students in the Adirondacks in yurts. Now that I am back on campus, I will be active in the Environmental Action Organization and Lettuce Turnip the Beet groups. I will also be participating in the Guide Training Program learning how to ice climb, whitewater canoe, etc. I live in the Outdoor Alternatives theme house, which leads trips almost every weekend. I love to read, row, and spend all my time outside.
