Matt Bambach ’14 Green Raider
My name is Matthew Bambach and I am a Senior from Fairfield, CT. I am studying Environmental Geography, and last spring I was lucky enough to take part in the ENST333 Extended Study to Buhoma, Uganda, alongside eleven other students and professors Frey
. I enjoy running, reading, fishing, skiing, and play on the men’s squash
team. I am also a small-group leader for Colgate Christian Fellowship
Ever since I first got to Colgate, living sustainably has been very important to me. In my FSEM with Professor Cardelús
, I learned more about climate change, building on my past studies in high school, and later became involved with a group of other freshmen to help implement sustainable practices into the Colgate community. The group wound up distributing aluminum water bottles to the students of HCS, and from that day on I have continued to work with the university to foster sustainability on and off-campus. I served as the Sustainability Chairman for my fraternity, Theta Chi, and am currently the program coordinator for Colgate Green Bikes
. Hopefully this year can be a big one for Colgate students and faculty to move further in the direction that our Climate Action Plan
is calling for, and as I’ve come to know the community here over the course of my past three years, I can find no reason whatsoever why it won’t be!
