Student Spotlight

Colby-Sawyer College students have been involved with Franklin Falls projects in a number of different ways. Some have been in classes that have assisted in projects, while others have completed their internship or senior capstone requirements through specific businesses or the umbrella project of the Sustainable Learning Initiative. Here are some descriptions of how they helped, and what they gained from these unique experiences.

“I define sustainability as making an effort to preserve our natural resources for the future generations to come and to use them efficiently. This project is bringing people together to utilize and care for the environment and to tell them that we can create a sustainable town just by putting a tiny bit of effort into it. It made me feel like I was giving back to the community, which gave me so much while studying at Colby-Sawyer in past three years. 

CSC’s liberal education program allowed me to explore classes in environmental field. This made me think how businesses play a huge role in sustainability and environment preservation efforts. I can use this experience to look for jobs in companies which are eco-friendly. This also helped me gain important references for job search after graduating.”
