On Feb 10th, the Asia Student Interest Group (SIG) and the Coalition on Food and Agriculture (CAFE) co-hosted an event to celebrate Lunar New Year by making vegetable dumplings and having a community discussion on the sustainability of China’s food system. Lunar New Year is the most important celebration in many Asian societies. Just like the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, it is the time of the year that people go back home to reunite with families and friends to celebrate the arrival of a new year (2018 is the year of the dog!)

Many students at F&ES choose to supplement their coursework by taking on positions with one of the 15 Centers and Programs affiliated with F&ES or participating in their events. Centers and Programs are an integral part of the F&ES community and provide a wide range of functions supporting students, faculty, and staff. From sponsoring student internships and projects to creating symposia, conferences, newsletters, and outreach programs, Centers and Programs take on a vital role in educating students, providing opportunities, and preparing students for the workplace with hands-on experience in a variety of environmental topics.

I am a third-year joint-degree student studying for a Master of Environmental Science (MESc) degree at F&ES and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree in Environmental Health Sciences at the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH).

I can’t believe that it is already the end of recruiting season and I am back in my office here in New Haven. I have had a great few months on the road and was able to meet with amazing prospective students around the country and even abroad. In 15 campus visits, 6 information sessions and 14 graduate school fairs, I was able to talk about the school, our master’s programs and what makes F&ES unique. Throughout this process, I was asked some great questions and want to share some of these with everyone who could not make it out to meet with us. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at Rebecca.email@example.com

My name is Sam Faries and I am a first-year Master of Environmental Management student as well as the newest student assistant with the Yale F&ES Admissions Office. In the two months that I have spent at F&ES I have had my decision to come here justified time and again. I have already received so much from the F&ES community and, I hope, give back by engaging with the next round of applicants and admitted students to answer questions and alleviate concerns about the application process, choosing a school, and F&ES at large.
