Sarah Snider Leohauser

Junior CSCG Fellow

Hi my name is Sarah! I am a junior and I am double majoring in Chemistry and Environmental Studies, and I intend on minoring in Middle Eastern Studies. I decided to become a CSCG Fellow because I found that nothing is more gratifying than being able to connect that passion I have with for science with current social, political, economic, and environmental issues going on around me. After Ursinus, I plan on continuing on to graduate school to obtain a Ph.D in both Chemistry and Environmental Studies, and eventually start a career as an environmental chemist for a government agency. I am also involved in Chapel on campus, and this past summer we went on a missions trip to Costa Rica. During this trip, we went into small neighborhoods and spread the word of God with the children through games, songs, and activities.

My Favorite CSCG Events

My favorite CSCG event was the Climate Forum. Students at Ursinus, as well as members of the local community, gathered to discuss their beliefs on climate change. Having so many people from so many different walks of life made the discussion extremely meaningful.

Life After Ursinus

After Ursinus, I plan to go to grad school to obtain a PhD. in both Chemistry and Environmental Studies.  My goal is to become an environmental chemist for a government agency such as the CIA, EPA, or FBI.
