Life Changing Experience

Through GCS, I have learned not to settle. I don't have to settle for a mediocre life, and I certainly don't have to settle for the environmental degradation plaguing the Colorado Plateau and the American West in general. As continue my education, I feel more and more that it will be my path in life to follow up on the multi-faceted ecological, socio-cultural, and economic issues I learned about during GCS. When a place made such an impact on my life, how could I not use my life to secure its future?
