    Alex's Bio:
    Hi, I am a junior here at St. Scholastica studying Biology. I just returned from studying abroad in New Zealand. I have loved living in Duluth and attending St. Scholastica so far. After St. Scholastica I hope to go to graduate school for environmental science. When I’m not studying you can find me hanging out with my friends around campus, working at Storm’s, or anywhere outside. I try to go up the North Shore and hike around Lake Superior when I have free time.

Independent Study

While in New Zealand, one of my classes was an independent study. To fulfill the four credits granted by taking this class, I wrote a research paper on longfin eels. Longfin eels are a species at risk for being endangered in New Zealand. I wrote a 25 page paper about the species coming to be in the state the are in and what needs to be done to prevent them from becoming extinct. I did interviews with volunteer groups and government members, read book, new policies, and other research papers to gain the information needed for the topic. It was difficult at first to choose a topic, we had free choice about what to write about. But once I settled on writing about the longfin eels, it was fun to dive into the project. It was a very rewarding part of studying abroad.
