"The ES&P program was a perfect fit for me. The program's flexibility allowed me to pursue courses that I was interested in taking in addition to the requirements. I also had two summer internships at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Working with the foundation of ecological research testing the effect of environmental factors on water quality and the distribution of the sensitive invertebrate population within the Carmans River. Not only did I learn a lot but I had fun doing it."
