Why CNR?

When I knew I wanted to be an Environmental Science major, transferring into the College of Natural Resources was a clear choice. I could have remained in L&S as an ES major, but I felt I could get more attention as a student in CNR. I was tired of having to see a different advisor with a different philosophy every time I needed a question answered. I didn’t like not knowing a single person when I went into Campbell Hall and sometimes having to wait over a week for an appointment with an advisor. A small, friendly college looked very appealing when declaring my major, and I couldn’t have made a better choice.

After over a year in CNR, I can walk into our awesome Resource Center and usually see a few people I can stop to chat with. I like being able to go to a place where I can find like-minded people, and having the resources of my college really cater to my needs and interests is something I couldn’t have found in L&S. It is no longer difficult to make an appointment with my advisor, and I have really enjoyed working with CNR’s faculty and staff. I look forward to one more year in this college and I hope to see you in the Resource Center soon!
