From Gator Nation to Africa, she’s ready to help the world

Published:

Jordan Weinstein, who will receive a bachelor’s degree in environmental science on Sunday, discovered her interest in sustainability through working with the Office of Sustainability’s GameDay program.

Weinstein quickly became the coordinator for the program, in which students collect recyclable trash during Gator home football games. Her interest in the environment widened to include the world’s food resources, and she’s combining that interest with her next adventure: as a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa. UF is among the top recruiting universities for the Peace Corps in the nation.
