Summit St. John

Fisheries and Wildlife (Wildlife Sciences) (BSFR ’25)

Columbus, Georgia


Why did you choose your Warnell major?

Growing up around nature and animals, I knew I wanted to play a role in caring for and preserving the population of the wildlife around me. This Warnell major allows me to start on my pathway towards a career in the zoo field, where I can engage in aspects like husbandry, enrichment and training in facilities that focus on education and conservation. Being on this degree pathway has allowed me to see how conservation can be supported in roles like that and many others, and it's so exciting to get to find my own way to contribute to it!


What's one thing you want your fellow students to know about you?

I am a huge Disney person, and actually just spent this past spring semester working at Disney World on a Disney college program as a lifeguard!


What's your favorite Warnell memory?

I had the opportunity to take a Freshman Odyssey class in Warnell studying how animals respond to climate change. Being in Warnell and getting to know the students and faculty that early on really was an experience that made me that much more excited to get started with my major!
