Environmental Science, Film Studies Minor '24

"I am Shannon Allen, a second year (soon to be third year) Environmental Science student with a Film Studies minor. I am studying abroad in Madrid, Spain in fall 2022 and I am doing a staff lead trip to Paris, France this summer. I have not traveled much at all in my life so this will be a very new experience for me. I am more than excited to get out of my comfort zone and share about my travels."
