Jacob VanderRoest

Founder and Director, Graduate Chapter of Student Sustainability Center

Jacob VanderRoest graduated from Hope College in the spring of 2021 with a B.S. in chemistry and a geology minor. While at Hope College, Jacob was the Co-President of the Hope Advocates for Sustainability organization: an internship program focused on implementing environmentally-friendly initiatives on campus. Upon enrolling at Colorado State University in the chemistry Ph.D. program, Jacob has sought to continue this sustainability engagement by working with the School of Global and Environmental Sustainability. He spends his free time trail running around Horsetooth Reservoir, rock climbing outside and at the CSU rec center, and playing electric guitar in a punk rock band called The Rattlecaps. Jacob is always happy to talk about sustainability! Feel free to reach out to jacob.vanderroest@colostate.edu.
