What is your major? Geology and Anthropology

How did you become interested in this major or field? I don't want to be stuck in an office. I've always loved the outdoors and geology may take me to very exciting places as well as anthropology.

Where do you see yourself five years from now? Maybe grad school if I figure out what I want to do. The peace corps has always remained in the back of my head but who knows. On the ocean or in the mountains.

What part of the research on this trip has interested you the most? The cores and sediment grab samples interested me because it is relative to my field of study but the beam trawl was fun because we got to see lots of different benthic organisms.

What part of the research has interested you the least? The CTD. It is important but there are no instant results. With all the other stuff you have something to see when you pull it up but the CTD all you have is water.

Did you get sea sick on this trip? No
