Hello CSS Community: My name is Edem Yevoo and I am a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science & Technology. This summer, I had the wonderful opportunity of studying abroad as part of the Quito Summer Environmental Studies program in Ecuador. The program, based in the capital of Ecuador, Quito, features field studies on issues facing environmental management and preservation in the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon region, and the Andean highlands. I was enrolled in three courses at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ). A few of the most memorable moments of my experience include climbing 16,000 feet up a volcano, spending a week in the Amazon rainforest, and spending three weeks exploring the Galapagos Islands. I would encourage all scholars to research study abroad programs and find one that best fits their preferences and academic schedule. Studying abroad was a truly enriching experience.

CSS has been a blessing to me ever since the first day when I interviewed for this program over the summer going into my freshman year. This program has given me a cohort of brothers that I have been lucky enough to go through college with. As I have aged, CSS has also given me the opportunity to pass down my knowledge to the younger generation. This is what I feel the program really is about. When I was a freshman, I looked up to the upperclassmen as my mentors. I tried to do what they did to achieve success like they did. Now I hope the younger generation looks up to me the same way.
