From Classroom to Campus: Brittany Robles Discovers New Wonders at Death Valley National Park with Western Oregon University

As a biology student at Western Oregon University, Brittany Robles recently had an experience that helped her feel more welcome on campus. Along with classmates, she took a trip to Death Valley National Park with biology professors Bryan Dutton, Ph.D., and Michael LeMaster, Ph.D. During the trip, they explored different areas of the park such as Badwater Basin, Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Ubehebe Crater, and Dantes View.

Through this experience, Brittany learned about various plant life and native reptiles. For her, it was a unique opportunity to learn outside the classroom and build relationships with her peers. Western Oregon University encourages students to participate in extracurricular activities and clubs to have such experiences and learn more about their interests.
