Jayson, Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability major

Hi! My name is Jayson (he/him) and I am a fourth-year student majoring in Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability with a specialization in Community Development. I am currently working in the School of Environment and Natural Resources Honors Program working on an undergraduate thesis that is studying the connection between COVID-19 response and Climate Change response in my hometown of Paterson, New Jersey. During my time in SENR, I have held numerous internship and research positions and have studied abroad on the Panama: Through the Lens of AgriCulture and Sustainability trip. As a Morrill Scholar, I am actively involved in campus student organizations like Buckeye Leadership Fellows, SPHINX Senior Class Honorary, and the Latinx Student Association.
You can meet with me to discuss my experience changing my major into EEDS from Engineering along with any tips I have for education abroad trips, research, or internship experiences from a student perspective. I can answer your questions about my journey to and through the honors program, my current, and past involvements, and even what it is like finding an on-campus job!
I’m open to discussing any questions you have about the SENR student experience, my personal experiences in SENR and Ohio State as a queer-identifying Latino, or anything that would help you best! If there are things I am not well versed in, I will point you in the direction of the people or organizations who can get the information you need!
