Student Blog: Lauren Weston '15

This morning, I told my friends that I was going to the greenhouses on campus. Simply put, they looked confused. It turns out that not many people I know UNH are familiar with the Macfarlane Greenhouse Facility yet.

The Fairchild Dairy Teaching and Research Center on campus is a well-oiled machine.  The entire operation has been figured out. From housing to manure removal, the dairy workers know how it should be done.

When you’re walking down the aisles of the local supermarket, it seems that every other item on the shelf reads “organic.”  But what qualifies a product as organic and how is it developed?

I grew up about three hours southwest of UNH in Northampton, Massachusetts. It was a very liberal community with a focus on politics, sustainability, and the arts above most everything else. I decided to come to Durham because of the friendly atmosphere, beautiful campus, and its resemblance to Northampton.

Although I do not know what path of study I want to pursue, some possibilities include journalism, political science, economics, engineering, and international affairs. In my free time, I am very active, often spending time at the gym, on the basketball courts, or in the pool.

My goal in writing these posts is to help inform UNH students, and anyone else interested, about the facilities on the UNH campus. I hope to provide a resource for education while also testing the waters of journalism and research for myself.
