Diamonique Clark '16
Diamonique is currently a senior environmental science student, who serves as vice president of the environmental club and a member of four academic honor societies.
“My favorite thing about SU is the encouraging faculty. I am thankful that many of my professors have taken the time to find out my interests, encourage me to do things out of my comfort zone, and acknowledge my accomplishments.”
Diamonique participated in a 10-week research internship in Puerto Rico where she studied the size class distribution of Pterocarpus officinalis, a wetland tree, between two wetland forest stands and assessed the progress of a near 25 years old restoration project. “From my research experience on and off campus and hosting community events, I’ve learned that I must help bridge the gap between the scientific community and the public so that everyone can see the value of protecting the environment.”
