Alice Ni awarded College Prize for Excellence in Earth & Environment!

The College Prize in Earth and Environment is the highest honor for our undergraduates, awarded to one student each year who demonstrates extraordinary achievement, both in and out of the classroom. This year, the honor goes to Alice Ni! Alice is completing a Bachelor of Arts in Earth and Environmental Science, a Master of Science in Geospatial Sciences and Remote Sensing, and a minor in Computer Science, all while graduating cum laude. Throughout her studies, Alice strived to create and communicate technology and data science that benefit sustainability efforts, both on campus and beyond.

As a student, Alice was active in BU’s Environmental Student organization, was a research intern in the BU Institute for Global Sustainability performing data analysis in support of the Visualizing Energy Project, and worked as a research assistant in BU’s Center for Remote Sensing. Outside of BU, Alice worked with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and the NYC Parks Department. In addition, she served as a volunteer for Queens Botanical Garden and the Million Trees NYC initiative. Alice’s academic achievements and commitment to improving and advancing sustainability and environmental goals are exceptional, and the faculty of Earth and Environment are very proud to present this award to her!
