Hello there!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Kelly Schmitz and I am a sophomore at UAF planning on majoring in Natural Resource Management. I’m a runner as well as a cross country skier and I enjoy doing anything and everything outside! I have traveled quite a bit outside of the USA and two of my favorite places which I have visited are Israel and the Galapagos Islands. Several fun facts; I really enjoy eating tortillas and I am terrified of balloon arches.

I am taking this class online rather than face to face because I am a school commuter and an online class will be easier to fit around my job. As an avid reader I am extremely excited for this class; it will motivate me to read books that I might never have picked on my own. I’ve noticed that books that I would never have read on my own tend to be the ones I learn the most from and grow to love.

Excited to get to know you all!

Kelly Schmitz

    Nice to meet you, Kelly! I enjoy Cross Country skiing as well! I mainly go out to Chena Lakes; It’s very pretty out there and not too crowded. I have always thought it would be awesome to get to go to Israel! That’s really great you’ve gotten to make those trips happen!

    Hello. That is wonderful that you got to go to the Galapagos island and Israel. I definitely will like to visit Israel and check all the historical places. That sounds cool. Unfortunately I didn’t got the opportunity to travel to oversees countries, only to states. It is awesome that you do country skiing, I don’t practice anything that has to do with the cold, but admire people that do. Chao!

    I’m so jealous of your Galapagos travels! Where do you want to travel to next? Welcome to class!
