Making a Difference
Bolstered by an exceptional education and valuable real-world experiences, College of Natural Resources alumni leave our halls ready to work hard to drive innovation and tackle global challenges that affect us all. They are leading the way in fields like sustainability and conservation, paper science, recreation and tourism, public policy, business, law and environmental science.
Our alumni go far, but many also stay near. They are making North Carolina a better home for all its residents by driving three of the state’s top five industries: forestry, wood products, and tourism and golf.
Making Basketball Inclusive for Everyone
As a student, Cal Maxwell founded the Spirit League of North Carolina, which helps athletes with special needs.
Managing Philanthropic Events
Recent graduate Ellison Lambert wants to help others by organizing fundraisers and events for nonprofits.
The College of Natural Resources is a small community on a big campus. Our faculty, staff and students are a family who learn and solve problems together, support one another and build networks that span the world and last a lifetime.
After you graduate, you remain a valued part of our community. By giving your time, talent and resources to the college, you can support our important work, especially in developing the next generation of natural resources leaders.
Check out some ways you can stay connected with us and with NC State.
