Student Ambassadors for the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences serve in a variety of different activities for the Department. Primarily they serve as student representatives for the undergraduate population. They assist in providing prospective students the current perspective of a student in our program as well as providing feedback to our faculty and staff regarding the state of our program. Listed below are our current Student Ambassadors for the 2017-2018 school year. Please browse their profiles to learn more about them and why they chose to study here at Illinois with NRES.
