What if one class made you change your mind about the rest of your life? That's what happened to Susie Adams. While in the field for a geology class, she discovered a passion she never knew existed inside her.

She then took a leap of faith, changed her major, and began working side-by-side with Jon Lewis, geoscience professor. It has proved to be a decision that changed her life for the better.

Susie's decision gave her more than a passion. It led her to winning the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship.
