Raider profile: Missy Velez ’16

By Gordon Brillon on January 11, 2016

I am a senior majoring in Environmental Studies with a minor in Art & Art History. I am from in Baltimore, Maryland, and grew up being outside most of the time, which has had a great influence on my love of the outdoors and my interest in environmental studies. I am a part of Colgate Outdoor Education, through which I have the privilege of teaching others about our local environment through activities like sea kayaking and rock climbing.

I am passionate about the outdoors and sustainability, with an emphasis on the intersections between policy, hydrology and coastal communities. Being a part of the Green Raider program is so exciting for me because it allows me to raise awareness about environmental issues and make positive change on campus.
