A future inspired.

“One course at AU changed my life. During my freshman year, I took Introduction to Environmental Studies, even though I wasn’t into nature. Fortunately, Professor Barclay brought my class outside to literally show us what we were learning. She also introduced me to literature that gave me a deeper appreciation for where we live. Now I’m a biology and environmental studies and sustainability double major with a part-time job in a lab doing what I love: making the world a better place.” – Gwen '24, biology and environmental studies and sustainability double major
