Its spring and graduation is just around the corner.
High school juniors and seniors are probably being asked all sorts of questions, like:
Where are you planning on going to college?
What are you majoring in?
What do you want to do?
However, you may be freaking out at the thought of having a stranger for a roommate or about living 100 miles from home. You’re also starting over in college with new clubs, interests and experiences, and you don’t know where to begin. There’s no time to think about what you may be interested in majoring in yet.
What if you could bring your passion for the environment with you and expand it in college?
The EPA’s OnCampus ecoAmbassadors program could be what you’re looking for. You can help implement projects from EPA programs to green your campus, promote environmental awareness and find resources to learn about EPA related careers.
