On the road again...

Many people in the US will recognize this phrase as the title to a Willie Nelson song (I know some of you are thinking “Who’s Willie Nelson, right?” You can google him if you are really curious…), but to F&ES admissions staffers it literally means that we are traveling.  Recruiting season is now upon us and F&ES has already participated in four different events this week.  The first took place right here in Kroon Hall for Yale students interested in the F&ES/School of Management joint degree program.  Then we visited Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY and two idealist.org graduate fairs in New York City and Washington, DC.  From here it will be a whirlwind two months of on-campus and off-campus events as we travel around the US to meet with prospective students.  Pittsburgh, Austin, Denver, Honolulu, San Francisco, Atlanta and the list goes on.  Toronto is our only international event this year, but hopefully we can meet some of you outside the US via Skype or online chat sessions.  Our Skype account is “yalefesadmissions” and you can email fesinfo@yale.edu to schedule a Skype appointment with us.

Application tip: If you do not have any environmental work experience, try to find a local environmental non-profit or community organization so that you can volunteer over the next few months.  Add this to your resume to help demonstrate your commitment to this career field.
