What our students say:

"The professors are great, and their studies diverse. Faculty members in the SES are the kindest and most fun people I've met in my University career. If you need help, an SES faculty member is sure to help you. Furthermore, my ENVB major allowed me to choose from a wide range of courses that met my interests... I truly appreciate the knowledge and experiences I've gained from my professors and through my classes."
