Make an Appointment with your Advisor!

Happy Halloween College of Forestry!

It’s that time of year again; a chance to dress up and revel in the spirit of Halloween!  That means it is also time to schedule an advising appointment to prepare for Winter Term!  Take advantage of the College of Forestry’s new online appointment system to schedule an appointment.

As you prepare to meet with your advisor, begin thinking about courses that you want to take this upcoming term, and come with questions!  Some things that should be crossing your mind include:

  • Am I on track to graduate by my goal date?
  • How did I perform this term academically and is that where I want to be?
  • How can I improve my academic performance next term?

Priority registration for Phase 1 of the 2015 Winter Term begins on Sunday, November 16th!

Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend!

Welcome to the 2014-15 academic year!

Welcome new and returning students!  We are so happy to have you here in the College of Forestry.  This year promises to bring  fun times, new experiences, and many exciting opportunities.

If you haven’t seen your advisor in a while do stop by to say hi.  This summer the new online advising appointment scheduling system launched.  Check out this video to learn how to use the system to schedule time with your advisor.

Did you know the college has a new head advisor?  Nicole Kent is the Manager for Undergraduate Curricula & Advising (AKA Head Advisor) and her office is in Peavy 204.

We here in Student Services are also happy to answer questions, give a little help, or connect you with resources across campus.  We’re located in Peavy 250.

If you’d like to learn about our student clubs and organizations, please plan to attend Clubs Day on October 14th.  From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Peavy Hall Courtyard you’ll find representatives from the CoF student clubs and organizations, and they’ll be able to tell you all about their activities, meeting schedule, etc. and you can even join the club.

Don’t forget to check out the Fernhopper Newsletter.  Each week this electronic publication is emailed to your OSU email account.  It’s filled with news, information, opportunities, and a listing of upcoming deadlines, etc.  It’s a great resource to use to keep up with happenings around the CoF.  Opportunities abound in the CoF!  Be sure to take advantage of them.

CoF Head Advisor retiring – Clay Torset Goodbye

Dear Forestry students,

As Spring term draws to a close, I am provided with an opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of the College during my tenure.  Since joining the staff and faculty in the College of Forestry in 2001, one of the most enjoyable activities I have participated in is welcoming the incoming class of students each year.  Since 2001, , amongst many other achievements, we have witnessed the growth of our eCampus student population which now includes 1/3 of our undergraduate students, we have welcomed the Cascades and La Grande campuses to the CoF family, we have introduced the Renewable Materials undergraduate major, and we have established of the professional program in Forestry.

The graduating class of 2014 holds special fondness in my heart as I am retiring at the end of this summer.  A new head advisor will be joining the College this fall.   For those of you who are returning for next year, continue to challenge yourself and embrace all of the opportunities to learn and grow that this College and University provides.

As for our graduates, congratulations on your accomplishments, strive for excellence in all that you do, and contribute to the betterment of our society and resources.

Farewell and congratulations to the class of 2014!

–Clay Torset, Head Advisor
