Ep. 3: Impact, From Bolivia to Atlanta
April 2017

About a dozen civil and environmental engineering students spent their Spring Break in Bolivia doing water quality research and collaborating with local scientists. And they came back with a redefined sense of the impact their lives can have in the world. We talk to four of those students about how their trip affected Bolivia — and how it affected them. We’ll also hear from three students and the benefactors who’ve helped pay for their Georgia Tech education. In each case, the scholarship they received was the difference between attending their dream school and settling for something less.

For this episode of Field Notes, we have that full talk, including how the characters she encountered and the circumstances of her career have made Shank Wall Street’s most powerful woman.

In the inaugural edition of our podcast Field Notes, we've gathered students, advisers and alumni to help prospective students get a better sense of what it's like to study in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, not to mention what it means to be a civil or environmental engineer.
