my name is Adam deer Singh I'm a second
00:17
year student at IU's studying
00:18
environmental management through IU
00:20
Corps I work with the farm and garden to
00:22
help organize volunteers and lead those
00:25
work days well the campus farm really
00:27
gives back by embedding itself in part
00:30
as part of the community so allowing
00:33
students to to come and get their hands
00:35
dirty and work within their food system
00:38
but also we donate a lot of the food
00:40
that we produce to local food banks I
00:42
think that that feels really important
00:43
because I know that we're not only
00:45
producing food for people that need it
00:47
the most but we're producing food in a
00:48
way that is really ethical and
00:50
sustainable and that in the end it's
00:52
really healthy so it feels especially
00:54
good knowing that we're doing good work
00:56
for our community but also good work for
00:57
our earth so I think any student that
01:00
volunteers through I you Corps at the
01:01
campus farm will find that educating
01:04
themselves on the food system and
01:05
becoming a part of that system is a
01:07
really challenging but rewarding
01:09
experience and that learning about where
01:12
your food comes from and even the food
01:14
that students will be eating on IU's
01:16
campus can be a great opportunity

Study Environmental Management and Environmental Science at O’Neill

Description of the video:

Study Environmental Management & Environmental Science at the O'Neill School!

AUDIO: Light music.

IMAGE: The Indiana University logo and white text that reads “O’NEILL SCHOOL OF PUBLIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS” is shown on a black screen.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 1: Environmental Management is one of those majors that's very unique to O'Neill, and I gravitated toward this major because I was really interested in environmental advocacy, but I wasn't super interested in the nitty-gritty science aspect of it.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 2: My major is Environmental Science, and I chose this major because I've always been fascinated with science my entire life. It is a very heavy science major. There is a lot of chemistry, physics, and biology in that.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 3: I'm majoring in Environmental Management, and I chose that because I really like science. I also really like people. So I really wanted something that would combine those two.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 2: As an Environmental Science student, your classes actually have access to the IU Research and Teaching Preserve. And so you get to go out there to a bunch of acres of protected forest with University Lake, which is an old reservoir.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 1: I would describe Environmental Management as a blend between environmental science and public policy.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 3: So you get that background on how environmental processes like the Greenhouse Effect work, but then you learn how laws and private sector/nonprofit actions interact with those scientific processes.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 1: If you're someone who's interested in helping the environment and doing environmental work, but you're not very interested in doing hard sciences of an Environmental Science degree, then Environmental Management would be a really good option for you.

AUDIO, SPEAKER 3: I just wanted to be involved in these really important environmental issues that we're facing today.

AUDIO: Light music.
