Focus on Students
Our unique blend of in-classroom training and field work, prepares students to thrive in a variety of work settings. Even before graduation our students are working with faculty members and partnering organizations to uncover innovative solutions to a range recreation, tourism and natural resource management issues. These educational experiences will give you a well-rounded skill set needed to catch the attention of future employers.
Weather you're interested in becoming an environmental consultant, a policy planning supervisor or the director of a ecotourism organization, our student organizations give you the opportunity to network, stay current on industry trends and contribute to larger goals that ultimately lead to building more livable communities and healthy living.
For example the Student Organization for the People and the Environment (SOPE) organizes events and community activities that help to shed light on local and global environmental and natural resource issues. The International Association for Society and Natural Resources is another organization that empowers students to get involved. Members learn about current research pertaining to the environment. Members also make important connections with peers and thought leaders who share their passion for smart and sustainable resource management.
