The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is dedicated to educating the next generation of natural resource professionals through an experience-based curriculum. An example of this dedication is the coveted tradition/right of passage of Treehaven. All College of Natural Resource (CNR) majors must attend this six-week field experience techniques course in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. This rigorous experience entails two weeks of forestry courses, two weeks of soil courses, one week of a water course, and one week of a wildlife course. During this time, students are working directly with exert professors in their field while using the latest technologies available. Students going electroshocking in rivers and lakes to see the different species of fish present and estimate diversity, use Sherman traps to catch small mammals and estimate diversity, and timber cruise a 40-acre parcel of land to take an inventory and eventually create a mock auction of the parcel.

I really like that the University of Stevens Point's campus is very compact. All of the academic buildings are very close to each other. The food is also very good, it is run by students. Stevens Point's campus and atmosphere is very welcoming. Most colleges say that you want to feel like you are at home when you are at school and I think I have found my second home!

Stevens Point has allowed me opportunities that I would not have been able to have anywhere else. I grew as an individual through my experiences in the residence halls, classes, Fire Crew, Wildlife Society, Women in Natural Resources, at sporting events and even out in the community. I cannot wait to return for more schooling! The environment is welcoming, safe, and fun.
