Taylor Higgins

Marketing and Outreach Team Lead

Year in School: Sophomore


Major: Environmental Engineering


Why is he a part of the Student Greenhouse Project: I see the Student Greenhouse Project as a very unique project for students to participate. The SGP has lots of potential to set a precedent for campuses across the nation to invest time and money into sustainable practices and education on sustainability and natural resource preservation. I am a part of this project because I want to be part of something that is going to change MSU's campus - and the world - for the better.

Justin Thomas

Inter-team Liaison

Year in School: Sophomore


Major: Engineering and Business


Why is he a part of the Student Greenhouse Project: I joined the Student Greenhouse Project because I think that the environment and people both need to be cared for, and there's no better place for that than a self-sustaining tropical oasis that provides a space for people to escape seasonal depression. Also, I am extremely proud to be a Spartan.  Being able to work on something is beneficial for my fellow Spartans and that will be a permanent part of Michigan State makes me very happy - I feel like its the least I can do for the college that makes me love every single day I am here.

Emma Calhoun

Operations Team Lead

Year in School: Freshman


Major: Neuroscience


Why is she a part of the Student Greenhouse Project: I have always enjoyed getting involved and giving back to the community around me. The Biodome is a great way to do both, and will benefit many people in the future.

Kaleigh Rios

Flora and Fauna Team Lead

Year in School: Sophomore


Major: Human Biology
Why is she a part of the Student Greenhouse Project: I have always felt a connection with nature and want nothing more than for future generations to have the opportunity to appreciate it as well. Because Earth needs it, I believe we should be advocating for and working towards radical change. I have met so many amazing people in this club who share a similar vision and that I learn more from every day. It excites me that we are working together on a large project that is going to bring a more sustainable future for MSU, and one that will hopefully inspire other communities to collaborate with each other and do the same!

Why is he a part of the Student Greenhouse Project:  I am really inspired by the concept of the Biodome, and seeing the project's goals of bringing people together and putting more nature in people's lives gave me a lot of hope for our generation and future generations.
