Raider profile: Ben Campbell ’16

By Gordon Brillon on January 11, 2016

I’m a Junior and an environmental studies major with a minor in economics. I hope to further my interests in natural capitalism and sustainable business practices via my major in order to influence future leaders to incorporate sustainability into their decision-making process. I’m an active member of Colgate’s community, participating in Hamilton Middle School Mentoring, the Colgate Rugby Football Club, Green Thumbs, and Student Senate.

While living a rural area of Central New York, I developed a strong connection to the outdoors and my surrounding environment. As I got older, this interest prompted me to make connections between my actions and their effect on the world around me, and subsequently resulted in a passion for sustainability. I’m am looking forward to how I can assist the Sustainability Office in achieving our Carbon Neutrality Goal of 2019 and enacting sustainable change at Colgate.
