About Amanda Huegelmann
Major: Environmental Science - Conservation and Restoration Ecology
Expected Graduation: December 2018
I first saw SEA in action at an interfaith panel they hosted during Water Week 2016. As I met more and more people from the organization and learned what the group had accomplished in the past, as well as what they had planned for the future, I knew I had to get involved. It feels like I quickly went from a gen board member, to CAN rep, then to co-president, and this is now my second semester with the position. It’s very humbling to be working with this group of people, and I am still learning something new each day.
My first experience with environmental education at Loyola was during my freshman year in the GreenHouse Learning Community. From there I gradually switched from the bio/pre-med track and committed to studying environmental science. I’ve always had a sweet spot for the outdoors and have spent many summers camping, as I come from a home of Boy Scouts and general wildlife enthusiasts. Because of my father and two brothers, I have been very active in Scouting, teaching nature study classes at Boy and Cub Scout summer camps, and simply just enjoying time outside.
When I’m not on campus, you can typically find me outdoors if the weather is nice. If not, I enjoy hunkering down at home - reading, playing guitar, re-watching my favorite shows, or taking cat naps (naps with my cats).
