Corinne Elise Spada
Bachelor Of Science - Earth & Space Sciences: Environmental
Class of 2014
What made you decide to get into geosciences?
I actually fell into geosciences. I went to UW trying to be an engineer, but realized it just was not for me. After taking a few quarters to explore classes in different majors, I found that I enjoyed the ESS class that I took the most. After taking several classes in the department, I remembered that geology is something that I have always enjoyed. I got really lucky that I fell into something that I enjoy.
What was your favorite part of the department?
My favorite part of the department was seeing similar faces every day. I never felt like I was going through any class alone, everyone was so friendly.
What are you doing now?
I am currently attending the Parks Law Enforcement Academy at Skagit Valley College. I am learning the skills I need to become a Park Ranger for the National Park Service. In May I will be headed to Bryce Canyon NP to work as a Park Ranger for the National Park Service. I hope to use the knowledge I gained from my ESS degree and combine it with the education I am getting at Skagit Valley College to help the public appreciate the natural beauty in this country.
Any advice for our current students?
My advice for current students would be to find a goal and work hard to get there. Even if you are unsure what you want to do, keep doing the things you like and do not be afraid to try new things if you feel stuck. Get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to always be better.
