As a freshman, although technically I still am one, I declared my major as pre-business. Through my business marketing teacher I found out about the RPTA major. I then almost immediately changed my major and my interest in RPTA has only grown. I heard about the ECOEE trip through one of my RPTA classes and fell in love with the idea of living in the woods for an entire semester.  This compliments my hobbies since I love to go on hikes and adventures in the woods.
