Dr. Amy Telligman is my favorite Wofford professor because of her passion and energy for environmental topics. She is always engaged with her students and finds exciting ways to teach her topics. In her ENVS 151 class, we did a waste audit on the front lawn of campus and disected the contents in trash and recycling bins around campus to find out how environmentally conscious our students were. She also has a genuine desire to keep Wofford held accountable to recycling and composting standards, which I truly appreciate.
I am practically in my eighties; I enjoy watching The Weather Channel with a cup of coffee in the morning!
After I graduate Wofford with Environmental Studies and Finance degrees, I am looking to be an urban planner or work in sustainable real estate development! I feel like these fields are constantly changing and have a great need, so I could go anywhere in the United States. After I have established some work experience and explored a new area, then I am looking to go back to a graduate program in Sustainability Science.
I feel confident that if you choose Wofford, you will find your niche here, so go out and try many different new and exciting things! I have enjoyed getting a fresh, new start and truly discovering my passions. Reach out to the upperclassmen on club pages you’re interested in. Most everyone at Wofford is always excited to meet new students and grab a meal or coffee!
