GoLocalWorcester.com shines a spotlight on Emily Sullivan ’14, an environmental studies and Chinese double major, as a “standout” in academics, athletics, and environmental issues at the College of the Holy Cross. The article recognizes her college career’s leadership work of serving as captain of women’s ice hockey team, director of environmental concerns for the student government association, program coordinator for Eco-action, and contributor to the Holy Cross Leadership Academy (Holy Cross’s student-athlete leadership development organization).
As a student with an active extracurricular life, Sullivan described the wide range of responsibilities she holds. “I lead student initiatives on campus, such as the installation of 17 new hydration stations at Holy Cross and the development of a sustainability guide for Holy Cross,” she said.
As far as life after Holy Cross, “I envision myself working in the international urban development field. I am interested in the sustainable development of Asia, and would like to work internationally there. Eventually, I would also like to become a professor of international urban planning,” she said.
