Student Spotlight: Helen Sajo
She aspires to become a professor one day to teach geography. She hopes to inspire her students to share her passion for the field!
"I chose geography as my secondary major after taking a general education class about climate change my freshman year. It inspired me to look at the world in a more geographical point of view and combined with primary major of economics this proved to be really beneficial.”
