Raider profile: Grace Thomas ’17

By Gordon Brillon on January 11, 2016

I am a junior majoring in Environmental Studies and Biology, and this is my first semester working as a Green Raider in the office of sustainability. On campus I am also involved in vegetarian club, Yes Means Yes, and was a cast member in This is Not a Play About Sex.

Being a green raider has meant that I can take theories and issues I learn in the classroom and apply them to situations on Colgate’s campus. I believe that climate change is the single greatest issue facing our generation, and learning to achieve goals of sustainability will be invaluable. After Colgate, I hope to pair my training in Environmental Studies and Biology working to protect the environment and maintain health of human populations in the process. I believe that human health is dependent on health of the environment, and that protecting our ecosystems in beneficial to us all.
