Madeleine Dewey is a senior in the BS environmental engineering program. She has been involved with numerous projects on and off campus, and served as president of the student chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World, an Education and Leadership Fellow in Sustainability, and Western New York Prosperity Fellow.
“The environmental engineering program at UB is small enough where students can develop close relationships with their professors and peers,” says Dewey, “from organizing key sustainability initiatives on campus, to leading a club, to mentoring first-year students, to participating in a study abroad trip during my final winter session, I can say with certainty that when I graduate in May, I feel ready to tackle life's next challenges."
