Sustainability & Environmental Science Open House

(Click here to learn about the Pre-med Open House on the same day)


Are you a student considering studying environmental science or sustainability in college?  Come spend a day exploring Goshen College’s programs in ecology, sustainability, & environmental science.  Students will tour our 1,189 acre field station (Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center) and explore tallgrass prairies, collect water quality data on High Lake, and learn about our one-of-a-kind Sustainability Semester in Residence.

Goshen College is a private, Christian liberal arts school in Goshen, Indiana intent on being Green!  Not only do our students have excellent success in getting into graduate school, we emphasize the importance of getting involved in research projects and restoration projects that improve our campus, community, and world. We are looking for students who share our passion for restoring right relationships with each other and the earth.

Goshen College has excellent field stations – students study at our Marine Biology station in the FL Keys, research wildlife in Kenya, and grow their own food during the summer in our Agroecology program at Merry Lea.  This is a college visit-day in the field!

Online registration is closed, but we still have space.  If you would like to register please email Dr. Ryan Sensenig –
