Student Support During Transition to Online Classes and COVID-19
If you have questions or experience problems accessing online materials for individual courses, please contact the course instructor right away – you’re likely not the only one having problems.
If you’re having trouble across the board accessing materials or transitioning to online course work or have any other questions or concerns, we are here to help.
Email your questions to the point people below, based on your major:
Environmental Sciences – Your Academic Advisor (Ashley Hamilton, Laura Garey, Kimber Lunsford, or Erin Champion)
Environmental Technology and Management – Professor Terrie Litzenberger (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology – Dr. Lara Pacifici (email@example.com)
Forest Management – Kimber Lunsford (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Natural Resources – Dr. George Hess (email@example.com)
You can also send questions to our department twitter account @NCState_FER or to the college twitter account @CNRHelp. This college account is being staffed 8am – 8pm by students who will help find the answers to your questions.
In addition, here are a list of resources you may find helpful during this transition:
Most of your online course resources will be available through WolfWare (wolfware.ncsu.edu). Log in with your unityID and password and you should see many of your courses listed as blocks on the current tab. Within a course block, use the buttons on the right to access any of the tools that are currently available for that course. Mouse over a button for more information.
