Aline Bass is a sophomore planning to major in either History or International Relations with a minor in Chinese. She has been interested in environmental issues, especially water scarcity, since high school. A couple of summers ago, she studied water policy in Beijing, China at Renmin University. This past September, Aline was one of twelve students to participate in a Sophomore College program sponsored by the Lane Center—The Colorado River: Water in the West as Seen from a Raft in the Grand Canyon. The course was transformative for Aline; it not only allowed her to observe and experience water issues first-hand, but also provided her with an interdisciplinary perspective on water management.
