Lauren Rhodes ’17, of Springfield, Virginia, is a senior Environmental Studies major. Throughout college, she has honed her focus within the major to communication methods and sustainable communities. She sees many environment-related problems in the world today as communication problems, and wants to help communities become more sustainable through improved communications. Work at the Environmental Studies Information Center at Oberlin College, research in the college Community Based Social Marketing lab, internships at the Fairfax County Park Authority in her hometown, writing for The Synapse, and the Introduction to Entrepreneurship class have contributed to her varied perspectives on environmental studies.
