Ellen Bassett (O'Brien) '12

    Major: Environmental Studies
    Concentration: Chesapeake Regional Studies

    I am the Miles-Wye Riverkeeper, working to protect and restore the waterways on the eastern shore of Maryland through restoration, environmental education, and advocacy.

    Favorite Class and Professor

    Chesapeake Semester and Dr. Schindler.

    Fondest WC Memory

    Honestly, just the community aspect—the dining hall, the western shore dorms, the library, walking to classes with friends.

    Let’s Hear It for the Liberal Arts

    The Chesapeake Semester in particular introduced me to networking, asking the right questions, and understanding how different stakeholders play a role in our environment and society.


    Cherish it!
