Environmental Resource Management
"Next stop – Virginia Tech."
In 2010, Keystone environmental resource management major Christine Bedene visited Costa Rica with a group of classmates on an educational trip hosted by geology professor Dr. Ian Saginor. The trip turned out to be a journey of a lifetime.
After studying the intricate details of how the earth has changed over time, Christine realized something very important. She wanted to continue her education and pursue a career in geosciences. Now, she’s going to do exactly that as she enters a master’s degree program in geosciences at Virginia Tech University.
"I’m really looking forward to it. I know this is what I want to do and where I want to go to graduate school. I can’t wait to get started."
Studying at Keystone has given her the opportunity to learn in an environment that allowed her to flourish and fueled her passion for learning.
"Professors Dr. Saginor, Dr. Robert Cook and Dr. Jerry Skinner were absolutely fantastic. They helped me reach my full potential as a student. Now, I’m ready to apply what I have learned at Keystone to a great graduate school. One day, I’d love to be a professor at a college like Keystone."
