Greetings!

My name is Maclovia Quintana, and I’m the new recruiter for the FES admissions office. I graduated from FES this past May with a Masters in Environmental Science, and this fall I’ll be meeting with prospective students on campus and in cities across the US in order to let you all know about the great opportunities available at FES and about how to apply!

I grew up in Santa Fe, NM, but I did my undergrad degree at Yale College, so I’ve been in New Haven for quite a while now. My academic focus at FES was on small-scale agriculture in northern New Mexico. Working with Professor Carol Carpenter, I used environmental anthropology as a lens to approach the question of how small-scale farming in the region…

Earth Day Texas

Howdy, y’all!

Last week, amidst a flurry of final papers and the chaos of the end of the semester, Kaylee Weil, my classmate and fellow Admissions assistant, and I called a timeout and took off to Dallas for the weekend.  Along with Kristin Floyd from the Development and Alumni Office, we got to represent the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies at Earth Day Texas, which is being held at Fair Park, home to the Texas State Fair.  Even though the Ferris wheel wasn’t running, it was nevertheless a great weekend.

Earth Day Texas, formerly Earth Day Dallas, is a growing annual event.  Although only a few years old, it is already one of the largest Earth Day celebrations in the country.  The free…

Final Thoughts

Wednesday was my final day of classes.  Ever.  I finished up four years of intensive law and graduate school and walked away from the Forestry School, feeling a bit dumbfounded.  This was the first semester in which I had no final exams and so I was able to finish up two final papers, one final project, and a final team paper and presentation by 5:20 pm Wednesday evening.  I did not feel elated but I was definitely ready to move forward with my career.  I would like to take this blog space to reflect on my experience in the joint program and share with you my recommendations and lessons learned.

 

First, I must say that I believe I made the right decision in applying and finishing the…

Moving to New Haven

Dearest New Admits,

Many of you have expressed curiosity and interest in how to best secure housing in New Haven. Rest assured, there are many great options here – you won’t be homeless! Let’s talk location, timing, living space and price, and search sites.

First, the majority of Forestry students live in East Rock, a quiet residential area of New Haven. East Rock reaches from Whitney Avenue on the west to the railroad tracks and Interstate 91 on the east and southeast, and from Hamden on the north to Trumball Street on the south. The East Rock neighborhood, named in honor of the traprock ridge East Rock, a short jog and 350 foot climb away. It’s a fantastic area with a couple of small groceries such as Nica’s…

Westies Full blown, Friday, April 4

Hello Prospective, Admitted and would-be-Westy Students,

The Admissions Office has told me that I can write about one of my favorite topics – the Westies!  In your reading about F&ES, hopefully you have come across the wide array of Student Interest Groups (aka “SIGs”) that we have here at the school.  SIGs span the spectrum of interests from energy to water to religion, to name a very few of the 29 active SIGs.  If you can find two other people who share your interest, there is probably a SIG for that; they are as diverse as the student body itself.  Don’t think there’s a SIG for your area of interest?  Don’t worry!  This academic year alone, students at F&ES started three new SIGs (…
