FIG Assistant: Savanna Puccinelli

Savanna is a junior and loves going on hikes, spending time with her friends, gardening at the Urban Farm, and anything in the outdoors. She is excited to get to know all of her FIG students and show them all of the exciting things that happen at UO. Urban Garden is a great FIG for any student who is interested in being outside in nature and growing food.
