Samuel Timms

My name is Sam Timms and while I call Ipswich Massachusetts home, I am originally from England where I lived until I was eight. I am majoring in Pathobiology and Communications, with my end goal being to branch the disconnect between science and the general public. One of the reasons why I am so drawn to Pathobiology is One Health and the codependence of human, animal, and environmental well-being. Having been a member of the EcoHouse Learning Community, entered college on a pre-vet track, and decided to pursue an additional major working with people, I have made it my ambition to protect One Health and become a catalyst for positive change. Outside of class, I work closely with the Learning Communities as a TA for a floor mentor course, and I am also a member of the scientific fraternity Alpha Beta Epsilon where I am currently serving as Academic Chair. I am also so excited for this opportunity to represent the College of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources as a student ambassador. When I am not in the classroom, I love spending time outside, whether that be hiking, paddle boarding, walking my two dogs, or playing a game of tennis. I also spent the majority of my time this summer working as a Camp Counselor at the Crane Estate, where I had the privilege of teaching children about their natural environment and helping them become environmental activists in their own right.  If I am not in class or outside, you can find me in the dairy bar, where I will be ordering a cookies and cream milkshake.
