Gina Ferruzza ’14 made the most of her Field Period opportunity with a civil and environmental engineering firm, and received “training she can use wherever she goes.” Read more about her experiences here. >>>
I completed physical labor around the park office and on the trails, assisted in maintaining a clean volunteer living area, and shared information with visiting tourists.
This Field Period provided many "firsts" for me. I was able to learn about life in a completely new environment, and it was my first time on a plane and being out of country. I met other volunteers from all over, and was able to see wildlife that I've only seen in zoos prior to this experience.
