Hello! My name is Alyssa Rodriguez and I am a senior studying Laboratory Animal Science. With my degree, I plan on pursuing a Ph.D. in the field of animal behavior and neuroscience. This winter, I will be traveling to Belize to be a part of the CELA Wildlife Health, Ecology, and Conservation study abroad program. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work with tropical wildlife and to learn how the Belize Zoo operates to maximize their conservation efforts. For fun and relaxation, I enjoy watching Ted Talks, spending time with my friends and family and practicing aromatherapy.
Hi there! My name is Andrew Morace and I'm a junior animal science major on the pre-veterinary track here at Rutgers. I plan on taking my education here and using it to pursue vet school so I can become a veterinarian. I am a commuter from East Brunswick, New Jersey so I'm pretty close by and have been local to Rutgers most of my life. I enjoy being a part of the community here you may know me from places like the Department of Leadership and Experiential Learning or New Student Orientation! In my free time you can find me at playing with my dogs at home, playing video games, going out with friends and hanging out at the Rutgers farm.
My name is Jeremy Lewan and I am currently a Freshman Meteorology Major in the Honors College. I am looking forward with great excitement and anticipation to participating in the 2019 Honors Embedded Spring Program involving the study of the coral reefs off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. As an aspiring future broadcast meteorologist, I want to know everything there is to know about the impact of climate change on this specific part of the environment. I am also very excited to be immersed in Spanish culture and heritage in Mexico and practice my Spanish with locals. In addition to travelling, I enjoy bike riding, hiking, geocaching, swimming, photography, and videography. I can't wait for all the experiences Rutgers has to offer over the next four years!
Hi my name is Rebecca Schultz, and I am a Junior Animal Science major, and an Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources minor at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers. I am apart of really great organizations on campus, such as Alpha Zeta Fraternity, Veterinary Science Club, and Oceanography Club. I am super excited to be studying abroad in Belize this Winter as a part of the C.E.L.A Wildlife Health, Ecology and Conservation program.
