Mark B. Smith
Mark Smith is a rising senior pursuing a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with a certificate in Environmental Studies at Princeton University. He has been deeply involved with many aspects of sustainability at Princeton, particularly developing a greenhouse gas action plan. He is currently studying field biology in Panama and loving it. This summer he can be found in the Caribbean Sea collecting and characterizing algae for use in mass-culture renewable energy production, or in a laboratory at Princeton working on the same project. He enjoys life, especially when it involves backpacking, adventures or being outdoors.

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.
