What I like most about Loyola: There is a way to deepen your engagement with anything you care about. As a student, I got to study the environment and grow as a writer through my degrees, but I also got to play in the orchestra, volunteer with high school students, play sports, and more. As a staff member now, I love seeing the way Loyola encourages everyone to explore their passions and become well-rounded people.

Aaron Durnbaugh, director of sustainability, shared his wealth of sustainability knowledge and provided me with opportunities for learning and growth.
