    I signed up for this class randomly because I wanted a chance to be more environmentally aware. I have loved this class so much because I have been able to meet new students on campus who are interested in environmental issues.

    I am very excited to see what the end results of this class are. I’m excited about all the schools that are involved and I think these students are so motivated and ready to do great things. I think the final presentation is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to see what everyone has come up with.

    Since starting at Santa Clara, I’ve tried to take one “fun class” per quarter to spice up my core requirements fulfilling schedule. I have always been interested in the environment, and when I saw the description for this class, I thought it would be benefiting for me and the school I would work with. I’ve taken other classes that have solely dealt with the science behind changes in the environment , but I felt that this hands on project would be very eye-opening and would teach me things I wouldn’t be able to learn in the classroom.
