Andrew Farias hails from Houston, Texas but has found a temporary home at Carleton as a recipient of the Posse Foundation Full-Tuition Leadership Scholarship. Andrew is a double major in Environmental Studies and Political Science, which he intends to use in preparing him for a career in environmental policy. His coursework has further encouraged his passions in learning about how waste management and water conservation are impacted by legislative actions. When not in class, Andrew loves leading or participating in one of many student organizations across campus, such as Environmental Carls Organized, Swipe Out Hunger, and the Carleton Student Association. As a Sustainability Assistant and as a CCCE Environmental Systems Fellow, he enjoys creating a more environmentally-conscious campus culture while furthering Carleton's mission for sustainability and stewardship.
