I am a rising junior at St Lawrence University majoring in global studies with a topical focus in environmental studies or peace studies and a geographical focus on southeast Asia. I’m pursuing minors in public health and sociology, as I hope to do social justice and non-profit work in grassroots organizing and advocacy.

Martina Velásquez Lemaitre

Martina Velásquez Lemaitre, class of 2024, is majoring in neuroscience and minoring in public health. Her interest in the way science can be applied to solve public health matters and improve people's quality of life motivated her to conduct summer research with Dr. Amanda Oldacre from the chemistry department of St. Lawrence University on the Electrochemical and Spectroelectrochemical Analysis of Catalytic Plastic Degradation.

Gabriella Diaz

Gabriella Diaz, '21, always knew she wanted to major in psychology, and once she got far along into this major she felt something was missing. A housemate suggested she take a public health course and she ended up declaring that minor the same semester. As a requirement for this minor she took a global studies class, and the following semester declared that as her second minor. Gabriella was able to make the connections between her courses, but wanted a way to encapsulate all her studies.

Makenna Burr

After completing her summer of 2020 research project, she has begun an SYE with Professor Hoffmann looking into the learning abiliites of native versus invaisive treefrog species.
