Student Spotlight

Justin PalmerAs an Architecture major and the leader of the Student Sustainability Committee, Justin Palmer's "passion for sustainability grew from an ambition to make a positive impact in people's lives." He said, "I look to sustainability as a path to follow into the future. I believe too many people get wrapped up in the here-and-now and don't look to the big picture. That is my dedication for sustainability - to help preserve our society as well as our planet, allowing us to thrive."
