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."

Freddie

Freddie Klaus '20

Environmental Science Major

"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!"

 

North Woods Stewards

Brandon Wilson Radcliffe '20

Environmental Science Major; Education Minor

"Growing up, I’ve always loved being outside because of the serenity and beauty that usually comes with it. As an environmental science major I end up spending a lot of times outdoors which is dope because. I think green spaces and forested areas should be something that everyone should have access to. As the North Woods Steward I’m looking forward to looking after the trails and running into any and everyone out there enjoying North Woods!"

Andy

Environmental Science Major; Studio Art Minor

"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!"
