CLASS OF 2018: WHY WE CHOSE SNRE
We were pleased to welcome 143 master’s students to SNRE this fall. The Class of 2018 hail from 11 countries, more than 40 universities, and virtually every region of the US. They bring a wide range of undergraduate degrees and most significantly, cultural experiences and unique perspectives. Although their interests, goals and career plans are just as diverse, they share an acute sense of their responsibility as stewards of the environment, and an eagerness, as one student put it, to get things done.
