Emma Lane, an alumna of the environmental and natural resource economics program and Bridgeport, W.Va., native, enrolled at WVU because of its exceptional programs, state pride and great atmosphere.
When it came to choosing her major, Lane thought about her hobbies and things she loved. Two of those things happened to be business and the environment.
“I love learning about our ecosystem and how to improve it, so this felt like the perfect fit,” she said.
While in school she interned at SustainU Clothing and helped coordinate their national campaign, OneShirtChallenge. She is currently a program assistant for EcoHealth Alliance, an innovative research organization specializing in conservation and wildlife, ecosystem, and human health.
