While many Cornell students spend their summers in office spaces, Alexis Mandon ’15 had a different kind of work environment for last summer. Mandon spent her summer studying Harbor and Grey seals at Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore Island, Maine.

Mandon said she has had a love for Shoals Marine Lab since before she arrived at Cornell. In summer 2010 she took a marine environmental science course for high school students at Shoals.

“I always liked turtles, so that got me into marine science,” she said.
