While the weather outside is frightful and it sure doesn’t feel like spring we here in the School of Environment and Natural Resources welcome all new and returning students, faculty and staff back to campus and wish all of our friends the best as we embark on this new year and spring semester. As always we hope you will be able to join us in the wide array of educational and engaging opportunities planned for the semester. Here are just a few to explore:
- Career and professional development and networking opportunities abound this semester for students and recent graduates, including resume workshops, Career Bootcamp, and the Environmental and Sustainability Career Expo.
- Learn about major environmental problems and natural resource management issues of our day by attending our weekly Seminar Series. Kicking off the series on Thursday, January 16 is Interim Director of Ohio State’s Office of Energy and Environment Kate Bartter with a presentation on the state of energy and the environment at OSU.
- Enjoy a delicious breakfast and connect with other environmental leaders at the monthly Environmental Professionals Network 2nd Tuesday breakfast featuring high quality speakers on important, contemporary issues. SENR students are encouraged to attend and build their network. The normal $10 cost is waived for students who volunteer to help with set-up the day before, or clean-up afterwards (James Schwieterman, Schwieterman.58). Breakfast “scholarships” are available upon request to the Office of Student Life (Carlos Lugo, lugo.7); or Office of Energy and Environment (Paul Laurent, Laurent.14).
- Discover our Extension/Outreach programs and plan to attend workshops on woodlands and wildlife, youth environmental leadership or download a recently published Streamside Landowner Guide.
Visit with other SENR alumni and cheer on the OSU Men's Hockey Team against Big Ten rival Penn State on February 1, 2014 at the Schottenstein Center. The SENR Alumni Society tailgate starts at noon.
