Eric found his love for the natural sciences and geology while a sophomore in high school when he saw a video of how the Earth was made. This initiated a yearning to further study the ground underneath our feet. His fascination has only been increasing since taking the introductory courses his freshman year and he is eager to take more specific geology courses.
Eric plans on focusing his attention in geology on glaciers and their environments; perhaps even continuing these studies into graduate school. He is looking into going abroad in New Zealand next fall semester to the University of Otago. In the meantime, he is excited about his current geology classes and labs.
