Natural Resource Ecology and Management Graduate Student Organization (NREM GSO)

Academic - Ag & Life Sciences

Description

The NREMGSO resulted from combining the Animal Ecology and Forestry Graduate Student Organizations. The goal of the organization is to further the professional development of graduate students and the department. Our organization achieves this goal in a number of ways, including organizing a departmental seminar series where students have an opportunity to learn about the research of others in their field and eventually present their own research, and by purchasing relevant computer software.
