SNRE Liaisons

Our SNRE Liaisons are a group of upper-division School of Natural Resources and Environment student representatives who assist our school with:

  • Prospective visits
  • Recruitment and other activities
  • Acclimating new students to our school
  • Supporting our undergraduate student council

SNRE Liaisons are upperclass Environmental Science students who have a minimum overall GPA of a 3.0, and possess leadership experiences in student organizations & societies. They are positive role models both on and off campus, and may have experience in related internships, field, laboratory and/or job experiences.

If you are a visiting student and interested in visiting our school, please email Karen (kbray@ufl.edu) or call (352-846-1644) about arranging a visit! She can tell you about our BS and BA degree track programs in Environmental Science, as well as introduce you to an available SNRE Liaison!

Marwa

I chose to study Environmental Science as a major because: the environment affects all aspects of life; it connects the world’s toughest challenges, including social and political issues. I have always wanted to work in developing countries, and the environment will play a huge factor in their future. Environmental Science allows me to study the natural world while giving me the tools I need to protect it.

Next step after graduation: I plan to study environmental law, and hope to bring peace to the Middle East in the form of sustainable development and policy.

I chose to study Environmental Science because the connection between humans and the environment is so fundamental, yet it is often overlooked or misunderstood. I want to be apart of a generation of scientists who not only improve the human understanding of the natural world, but then apply this understanding to minimize the human footprint on the Earth.

Next step after graduation: I hope to work in a setting which encompasses the interrelatedness of energy, ecology, and waste.

Justin

I chose to study Environmental Science because I am incredibly interested in the relationship of people with their environments and environmental conflicts. I'm interested particularly in how people's worldviews influence their interaction with environmental issues and how grassroots environmental movements emerge and develop. 

Next step after graduation: I hope to attend graduate school and eventually focus on working at the community level to help solve environmental conflicts. 


Kevin

I chose to study environmental science because I have always been interested in National Parks and the organisms that inhabit them. I feel obligated to protect what I love and am enthusiastic about doing so. There is always more to be done for the natural environment. 

Next step after graduation: I hope to make a contribution to the study of environmental science with a focus on ecology and plant science. 


Peyton

I chose to study Environmental Science because I grew up by the Gulf Coast so the natural world has always been an important part of my life. I feel very passionately about ecological issues and want to do my part to help preserve the environment for generations to come. The environment plays a significant role in my life as an individual and in the world as a whole.

Next step after graduation: I hope to find a career that focuses on helping sustain the environment.


 

Grace

I chose to study Environmental Science as a major because environmental issues influence economics, culture, politics, agriculture, and the livelihoods of all people. I believe ignoring environmental issues and climate change not only puts ourselves and our community at risk but also endangers the rest of the world, particularly nations that don't have the means to protect themselves from the consequences. I’m studying Environmental Science because I want to help ensure that everyone, including people of all nations, religions, and socioeconomic statuses, has equal access to resources today, tomorrow, and decades from now.

Next step after graduation: I plan to attend graduate school to study environmental policy.I hope to devote my life to public service and work to promote the development and implementation of effective environmental policies that promote equity and sustainability.
