Dear Warner College Alumni, Friends, Faculty, and Staff,

This time of year is always filled with great energy and optimism as new students start their academic careers and returning students take on new challenges. Our atrium was filled with passion and excitement as we welcomed more than 180 bright new students to WCNR at Ram Welcome on Aug. 23.

That excitement has set the tone for a successful and vibrant semester ahead and, as you will read in our stories, we're already off to a fantastic start. 

This is also the time of year when I want to send my deepest gratitude to our faculty and staff who provide a welcoming environment, exceptional programs, and dedication to our students. One of the great joys of being dean is interacting with our alumni who can't wait to talk about their college experience and all of the people who have meant so much to them and their career success.

Also, thank you so much to our supportive donors who make a difference in the lives of our students and the global impact of our College's work through your investments. The College is fortunate to have a strong and proud family of alumni and friends who have helped build our legacy of natural resources leadership.

From the College and your most grateful dean, thank you for making our College a place where, year after year, dreams come true for our students and the communities where we work.

All best wishes for a fantastic fall, and Go Rams!
