Finding a calling in Greenland

Our camp in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

Neil Henry ’18

Environmental science major

Studied environment science, specifically arctic glaciology, at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia

“Part of my specific program included going to study the ice sheet that covers Greenland. The expedition there was definitely the highlight of my abroad experience. I made such great friends and had such great hands-on experiences learning about climate change. We went dog sledding with Inuit hunters, saw the northern lights, and got caught up in a 30-year storm. My time overseas has taught me a lot about my calling in this world. I hope to one day work for a research lab to study the Greenland ice sheet. I am hooked. I plan on keeping in touch with my DIS professors. Who knows, maybe I’ll be working alongside them one day.”
