Welcome

Hello, we are the College of Natural Resources Student Ambassadors!

We serve as liaisons between the College of Natural Resources (CNR) and the community, which includes prospective students, transfer students, parents, alumni, and YOU!

Our current ambassadors are listed below and we are available for any questions you may have about our undergraduate degrees and programs. Please feel free to contact us by clicking our individual email links. We would love to hear from you.
