“My studies are teaching me to see the world differently. What I used to see as an empty pasture has become a rich landscape full of geological and environmental possibilities. This past summer I was able to job shadow with a land reclamation company and get some real-life experience. This confirmed my desire to make a difference by taking care of our environment. I love what I’m learning in the classroom about land science. The hands-on approach to education at Olds College is a great fit for my skills and is preparing me for a future full of possibilities.”

Jessica Kopp, Land & Water Resources Graduate
