American University Campus

Welcome to my site! My name is Caroline Powell, and I am a sophomore from Queens, NY. I am majoring in International Studies with a focus on Environmental Sustainability and Global Health.  I had an amazing opportunity to study sustainable farming methods in Costa Rica last semester which inspired my topic area for the Olson Scholars Program. I will be pursuing a more in-depth look at global food production, specifically farmers’ rights, agricultural law, and corporate policies concerning pesticide use.

My on-campus involvement includes AU’s co-ed service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, Zero Waste Club, and SIS Diplomatic Corps. I am excited to be a part of this program and see what’s in store for the 2019-2020 cohort!
