Yardley, Pa., native Grace Miloszar is an environmental science major at Kutztown University. She plans to graduate in May 2023.
Why did you choose KU?
I thought Kutztown was a good option because it’s not too far away from home, the in-state tuition is affordable, and I was awarded an academic scholarship upon applying. It’s a good state school because it’s not too big, it’s not too small, it’s diverse, and there are a plethora of programs. I thought it’s a good fit for me because it’s not too hectic and busy and it’s very laid back, but at the same time, it’s a place that could challenge me. Also, for agriculture and environmental science it’s a good program because of the farmland we’re surrounded with and the general terrain in the area
What clubs and organizations are you involved with on campus?
I’m not currently involved with any clubs, but I completed an internship last summer at Suburban Testing Labs in Reading, PA. It’s a water treatment testing lab, so I learned to do different analyses while testing water. I made a lot of good relationships and references and still work there part-time.
What made you choose Environmental Science with a concentration in Biology as your major?
I took an AP Environmental Science course in high school and realized it was the type of science I wanted to go into. With current issues now like climate change, it’s important to be educated and do something about it. For the Biology track, Biology is a broad subject area and I felt like I could do a lot with it relating to ecology and preservation.
How has Kutztown prepared you for this career track?
The faculty and staff in the Environmental Science major are great. The introductory course professors really helped me prepare for the major. The classes I’m taking are interesting as well as challenging. Also, the surrounding area has learning opportunities at the Rodale Center, the eco plot, and we can plant trees at Sacony Creek.
What is your favorite thing about attending Kutztown?
The people. I’ve made a lot of good friends here even though I’m not from the area. Also, it’s a nice change of scenery. The people and environment are really nice.
What advice would you give to incoming students?
Just try whatever you want to try out your freshman year. If you don’t declare a major right away, that’s completely okay. We have a wide variety of good programs and there’s something for everybody here. Try as much as you possibly can and if you don’t like it, don’t get discouraged. You can always start something else until you find something that fits right.
