Sophie Rathjen

Sophie Rathjen '16 is a double major in sustainable agriculture and food systems major
outdoor education
What should students know about UNH Trash-2-Treasure's move out program this spring?
Trash 2 Treasure is a ton of fun and a great way to meet interesting people and help our campus in a direct way. We always need help in the spring with collections, so any and all help we can get is appreciated.

How do you plan to use your sustainable agriculture and food systems degree post graduation?
I hope to work with youth to educate them about environmental concerns and help them develop an ethic of environmental stewardship through hands-on teaching in agriculture and community food systems. 

What motivates you personally to be involved in sustainability?
I am motivated towards sustainability because I love working and being outside. I feel it is important to preserve our ecosystems so that others after me can enjoy and continue to learn from the environment as I do.
