According to Spanish and topical studies major Sammi Meador, it can be hard to use words like environmentalism and sustainability when talking about her personal and academic interests.
“These are hot topics right now,” Meador said, “and a lot of people think these are just wishy-washy terms.”
As she explains, however, sustainability is about far more than buzz words and empty gestures. Environmental studies is also about people.
