"My college Earth-science professor, Dr. Farrell’s positive attitude never fails to make me smile. She was so excited to support my plans to study abroad, regardless of country or subject, that I couldn’t help but feel I was already on the plane. Her passion for teaching and learning about the cryosphere encourages me to continue pursuing challenges that both deepen my interests and grow my curiosity." —Logan Daytner
