Alumni Spotlight Q & A:
Where are you from, Cassie?
I am originally from Texas.
What was your major at UNH and who was your advisor?
M.S. in Environmental Sciences, Ocean Mapping; I graduated in Dec 2018, and my advisor was Dr. Tom Lippmann.
Why did you choose UNH?
UNH has the best Ocean Mapping program in the country at EOS' Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping.
What were your favorite courses and why?
I loved the Intro to Ocean Mapping courses because that's what I really wanted to learn about.
What was student life like and what did you think of the extracurricular activities?
Graduate student life is not like undergrad; there are only so many groups and extracurricular activities to join, but also not enough time to really join. Graduate student life was more like a 9–5 job, except it went much longer than 9–5 and usually some portion of your weekends. This is why it is really important to love what you're learning about.
What was the biggest transitional issue you faced when you started at UNH?
