Meet Mickey Castigador: Treating Land and Water with Care

Meet Mickey Castigador, a second-year undergraduate student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture. He is one of the newest members of the Land & Water iCAP team in 2022-23.

Castigador decided to get involved with the Land & Water team specifically because he believes that “the way we treat our land and water reflects how well we can take care of ourselves and our communities,” and he hopes to help prove that we are more than capable of treating ourselves properly.

His favorite aspect of working with the iCAP teams is the idea of coming together as an complete academic community.

“It is gratifying to have teachers, other faculty members, and students all converse and share ideas to help the campus become a model for other sustainable communities,” he says.

Castigador hopes to learn more about how an academic institution can become a leader in sustainability, and how we as individuals can apply these practices on a larger scale.

In his free time, Castigador enjoys reading comics and nonfiction books at the public library or spending time with friends. He also loves to write and spends a lot of time “putting his train of thought down on paper.”
