Find Your Passion

QuoteI've always been passionate about helping to find solutions for one of the most depleted natural resouces in the world: water. My desire to address the water crisis drove me to look for the universities in the US that could support the realization of this vision and desire. Fortunately, I discovered WIU's Ph.D. Environmental Science program. The program's goals agree with my instincts, which encouraged me to apply for the course. As my study continues, the Ph.D. envrionmental science program equips me with the information, abilities, and analytical tools I'll need to address these environmental concerns in all its facets.

Advice from Alumni

QuoteOne piece of advice I would give a current WIU student is to take advantage of the networking opportunities provided by WIU. The RPTA program hosted a mentorship program that I participated in, and it truly gave my career a jump start. Seek out your own mentor who can be a support system as you transition from college to career. In addition, get to know the Quad Cities community while you are here; it is filled with great organizations, businesses and experiences.
