When Sophie Lahey first came to the Kelley School of Business, she was not particularly interested in the environment or sustainability. It’s now part of her major and career path—she’s a senior studying sustainable business and public policy analysis.
It started with the need to belong.
“My first semester was a challenge,” Sophie says. “I didn’t find my group right away. I questioned if Kelley was for me, even though I loved all my classes. I joined the Net Impact student club because the members were so welcoming. I wanted to make friends.”
Sophie made many friends—a network of likeminded students who care deeply about the world around them and how they can solve problems to make positive change. She also discovered a passion for preserving the environment for future generations.
