I spent a year at UW-Richland as an exchange student from Switzerland. I took random classes such as art history, astronomy, Spanish and many more. But one class was better than all the others together ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½geology. That is why I started studying Earth Sciences when I got back to Switzerland after my gap year in Wisconsin. Thank you so much, professor Dr. Norlene Emerson, for letting me discover my passion for geology.
