Will Borowka

Will Borowka ‘20

Environmental Studies & Political Science Double-Major

"I enjoy being the BikeMore Co-Manager because it allows me to meet new people all over campus and I can directly observe how the work I do impacts Skidmore. I love seeing people riding around all over campus and downtown in the spring; it always brings a smile to my face."

"I work for the Sustainability Office because I love this planet and want to see it happy and healthy! Bikes are also by far the best method of transportation, and I hope to inspire the Skidmore community to choose them over cars whenever they can. Beyond being environmentally friendly, bikes are fun, and I want everyone on campus to be able to appreciate the joy of a bike ride!

Peace, love and bike grease!"

Andy

"In the consumeristic society we all live in, it’s not shocking that 1/3rd of all food produced is wasted. As a Compost Manager, I hope to make a difference in students’ lives by showing them how they can utilize their food waste and transform it into healthy organic matter. I also don’t mind getting a little dirty along the way!"
