Autumn is always a time of new energy and fresh optimism. This year is no exception. We have new hires, new research grants, increased student enrollment and exciting initiatives to further serve our college community. We are welcoming a full return to in-person events with increased opportunities for collaboration and connection. Please plan to join us for Homecoming and the College of Forestry tailgate on October 15! Also in October, we are raising funds for the Rootstock food pantry to continue supporting food-insecure College of Forestry students. We invite you to join us in this crowdfunding campaign.
