“I have a passion for the natural environment and I was lucky enough to get the position as Arboretum Intern under the Office of Sustainability. In my year-long position, I worked to rebuild the Arboretum from the ground up, alongside the best team a girl could ask for. It will be bittersweet to graduate in May 2019 but there is no better experience to look back on than a year-long experience among the trees! Feel free to sign up for the St. Mary’s Arboretum Association and receive updates and newsletters from your campus arboretum.”
