Rhianna Hruska, MES communications assistant

Hello!  My name is Rhianna Hruska and I'm a 1st year MES student.  I'm the Communications Assistant for the MES department.  Feel free to email me any questions or concerns you may have.  I can be reached at  If you are a current student, please send pictures my way and I can include them on MES online posts!

I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz in Spring 2014.  I double majored in Environmental Studies and Anthropology in three years.  Most of my work in Santa Cruz was in ichthyology, entomology, dendrochronology, or environmental education.  I love running, cycling, reading, traveling, and exploring the outdoors.  I was drawn to the MES program because I wanted my studies to be interdisciplinary.  The Evergreen State College gives me the opportunity to meet people who are passionate about making a difference in the world, work with fantastic faculty and staff, and expand my knowledge on environmental issues.
