Alumni Spotlight

Luke Carlson, forestry graduate

I would not have had the same experience these past four years had it not been for the generosity of our donors at the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences. Luke describes the support by the University as “unparalleled,” and is excited to begin his professional journey in forestry, where he will work hard to make a difference in people’s lives. Having spent years learning the scientific aspects of this work, he is excited to now apply his learning to actual practice. Luke is pursuing a career as a consulting forestry manager.

Mignon Denton, NRM graduate

I chose the Natural Resources Management degree program because of the variety of choices it offers. It allows students to choose any minor and provided enough flexibility for me to shape a major that fit my interests.

Brae Brukner, wildlife graduate

In addition to living and working with top forestry and wildlife scholars, students have the opportunity to work with a variety of state, corporate, and private entities during their summer practicum.  The summer provides a lot of networking opportunity. You get to work with the best ornithologists, the best herpetologists, and the top minds in today’s wildlife research.

Matt George, wildlife graduate

Being involved in student clubs within the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences has allowed me to truly experience much of what this wonderful school has to offer. I have made countless professional contacts through my participation in The Wildlife Society and as a Student Ambassador. I believe that getting involved in student clubs and organizations is one of the most important things a student can do for his or her academic and professional careers.
