Why study biology?

Nicole Gaudenti My passion for biology and ecology is tied to my desire to make a positive contribution, educating and inspiring people about all the beautiful organisms on the planet and their undeniable connection to us. Any person can contribute in a small way to reducing humans' impact on the planet, and organizations and schools need to facilitate such conversations in a way where people feel valued.”

Nicole Gaudenti, Biology '15

Nicole is working toward a master’s degree in biology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, studying the thermal ecology of blunt-nosed leopard lizards.
