Congratulations on your decision to come to ESF. We look forward to welcoming you this coming August and for you to embark on your journey of discovery here. Our College provides you some wonderful opportunities to engage in a range of learning and social activities and we hope that you engage fully with them. During the next few years, you will not only take part in a great educational experience, you will also learn from each other as you pursue your passion for environmental science, engineering, resource management, policy, and design through hands-on education. While our physical campus is small, we want you to take advantage of the numerous and varied external properties that ESF maintains, from our Adirondack properties, to Heiberg forest, to TIBS, to opportunities within the greater Syracuse area. All of these opportunities embody the ESF creed of caring for each other and all aspects of the natural and built world within which we live. Enjoy your summer and come to ESF ready to engage fully in this great educational experience. We are here and ready to help you.
