Dear Mighty Oaks,

Congratulations on your decision to become a member of our great ESF family! On behalf of the entire students, faculty, and staff of our college, I welcome you to our institution as you prepare to join us on campus this fall to begin your ESF academic and campus life. During the next few years, you will not only gain one of the best formal education in the world, you will learn from each other as you pursue your passion for environmental science, engineering, management, policy, and design through hands-on education. Our focus at ESF is education through discovery and dialogue. You will also find opportunities to participate in clubs, service organizations and in our community. Together we embody the ESF creed of caring for each other and all aspects of the natural and built world within which we live.

Congratulations, welcome to ESF, and see you soon!
