Not only do our students get to experience a life-changing trip, we also place them on a path to career fulfillment in sustainability & give them a group to call family. These are their stories...
"My big dream is to somehow be able to make a global impact that promotes sustainability, clean energy, and the pursuit of STEM education."
"I'd like to work towards conserving the natural wonders that have inspired me so that my children's generation has the opportunity to appreciate the environment as more than an afterthought of past generations."
"As a child I always understood the importance of being a globally minded citizen, which is why I think I grew up with the desire to be apart of something bigger than myself and help others become better versions of themselves."
"TGP has been instrumental in solidifying my desire to work within sustainability and focused my interests on human-centric sustainable development."
"Living in a city that backs right up to wetlands and beaches, I always had love for the natural environment."
"The GREEN Program had a large focus on a topic I was interested in and wanted to learn more about, and I had the opportunity to learn about sustainability in an immersive environment."
"I will always hold my Iceland trip close to my heart, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity."
"Learning about renewable energy resources in an immersive environment was very engaging and I realized that I wanted to continue studying sustainability related topics at university!"
"TGP opened my eyes to what direction I would like to take my Civil Engineering major once I graduate."
"I want to travel to the developing world to help establish clean water access and management."
"I am dedicated to my art (structures and architecture) and wish to see the development of sustainable design incorporated throughout my lifetime."
"Thanks to TGP I have gained a new passion for sustainability and cannot wait to incorporate it into my future career!"
"Going to Iceland with TGP was life changing, it inspired me to dedicate my engineering career to sustainability."
"My experience with TGP in Iceland was packed full of stunning landscapes, unique adventures and brilliant people."
"Taking classes at Reykjavik University while being immersed in nature helped solidify my thoughts of an ideal career path post graduation."
"I want to help as many people as possible through education. I want to inspire people and help them know that they can do anything."
"The GREEN program was the fastest 10 days of my life, but I learned more about myself and the environment than I did through four years of my undergraduate career."
"My resume summarizes all of the experiences I've had, but it doesn't share my passion and dedication to whatever I choose to pursue. I'm extraordinarily energetic and have a bright, positive outlook that is contagious and makes everyday challenges enjoyable."
"I want to leave our earth in better shape than I came into it. I want to make sure that my kids and grandkids and great-grandkids can live in this beautiful world without fear of losing the very things that make it so beautiful."
