College Park Scholars-Science and Global Change Program

Fossil Hunting at Bayfront Park, Chesapeake Beach, Maryland


My name is Lourdes Jack and I am 19 years old and a current undergraduate student at the University of Maryland College Park. I am currently a freshman at the University of Maryland looking to earn a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from the A James Clark School of Engineering. I am also a part of the College Park Scholars Science and Global Change program that takes time to explore what the true nature of science is and the causes/effects of global change on our planet. Alongside my academic classes I participate in intramural soccer and conduct research for the United States Army and their new inventions involving the protection of soldiers in the vehicles in response to explosive mines. I am a participating member in Women in Engineering and an active member within Alpha Omega Epsilon, American Society of Civil Engineers, and QUEST.

College is a place where I will learn all the necessary skills to not only succeed in my career, but learn to be a productive contributing human to society. I want my college experience to lay out my pathway in what I want to do for the rest of my life, but I also want to explore outside my career path. Here at the University of Maryland their are so many things to do and so many life changing opportunities to explore. I plan to absorb as much information as I can, but also to continue to create life long friends. The Science and Global Change program will teach me a new way to look at science. They also will help me to better understand the reasonings behind our ever-changing global environment. This course will help me in my sustainability aspect of civil engineering working to preserve our planet.
