Jill Marshall, Assistant Professor of Geology at the University of Arkansas thought she was ready to go to college, but there she was on the campus of Boston University as a freshman overwhelmed by her surroundings and on shaky financial grounds. Coming from a modest economic background in Colorado, she made the difficult decision to leave, both school and the East Coast to come back home and start over. Her winding journey took her through community college watershed and stream science with a state agency, to gaining a deep love of big questions while digging pits in graduate school] and now Critical Zone science in Arkansas. Today, she stresses to students that “science is a living thing.” (Recorded 14 December 2018)
