Seeing No Limitations: Peter Price

One of the oldest traditions in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences is its Geology Field Camp. Those who have been a part of this tradition never forget their experiences, the bonds they formed, or what they learned. 
 
University of Kentucky alumni Peter Price was one of those lucky enough to participate in the Geology Field. We sat down with Price at a Field Camp reunion where he talked about his own personal experience at the camp and why his time at UK was so crucial to pursuing his life goals.
