Attend the Kolshorn Lecture and Reception.
The Kolshorn Lecture and Awards Ceremony, held each fall, is FWCB’s biggest annual event. FWCB invites a distinguished scientist or conservationist to campus to give the lecture. Alumni and friends are encouraged to attend the lecture, awards ceremony, and reception. It’s a great chance to catch up with former professors, staff and other alumni.
Be a mentor.
The CFANS mentor program is an excellent opportunity for students to connect with professionals working in their areas of career interest. Through this relationship, students can get an inside view of how various companies and organizations work, how professionals balance life and career and learn how to better prepare for the working world. Each year, both undergraduates and graduate students are matched with alumni mentors.
