More About This Scholar

Hi, my name is Rich Sutphin. I am a junior biology major at West Virginia Wesleyan College located in Buckhannon, WV. Raised in the southern coal fields of West Virginia, I never dreamed of study abroad, much less in Africa. During the summer of 2011, I spent two months studying Swahili in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and for the fall semester of 2012 I will be studying again in Tanzania. I will study Coastal Ecology and Natural Resource Management on Zanzibar through SIT. Planning a career in public health, I hope to gain a more solid grasp of how the environment, culture, and health are interrelated.
