Rice University

Jeremy K. Caves
Jeremy is an Earth Science major, spending the spring semester in Samoa studying invasive ants. He hails from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he developed a deep love for mountains and deserts, as well as green chile. Jeremy loves anything outdoors and is an avid backpacker and birdwatcher, and he hopes eventually to become a much more well-rounded naturalist. At Rice, he works to make the campus more sustainable and promote environmental awareness among his fellow students. Ultimately, he hopes to work in academia or for a federal agency, protecting and researching the wild areas he loves.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
