Get Involved on Campus

Discover your passions, build your resume, and make friends along the way! Whether it is joining a student organization, working at one of our centers, or participating in research at one of our three field stations, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved.

  • Join the student chapter of the Land Conservation Society, who regularly hosts guest speakers and participates with land trusts and other organizations in field days assisting with trail maintenance and land stewardship, or any of our other 200+ student organizations housed within Campus Activities and Student Engagement.

  • We are home to the Center for Land Use Education, a focal point for land use planning and management education.

  • Participate in undergraduate research and present your findings at professional meetings, conferences, and our annual Jim and Katie Krause CNR Student Research Symposium

  • Read the CNR Reporter, a weekly newsletter, for information on upcoming presentations, student organization meeting times and other important happenings on and around campus.

Gain Experience Outside the Classroom

Prepare for your career with additional hands-on experiences in all areas of natural resource management during a required summer field experience. You can choose between our six-week, hands-on summer field experience held at our Treehaven field station or on-campus, or take part in our European Environmental Seminar and learn how European natural resource management compares to the United States.

Summer internships and jobs are another great way to build your resume. We make them easy to find through our partnership with Handshake.
