My Turtlely Awesome Summer – Kayla Smith

My Turtlely Awesome Summer – Kayla Smith

“It’s really simple, just look for a car-size turtle coming out of the ocean.” This was the sentence I heard from Mr. Taylor as we walked Keys beach in Saint Kitts looking for nesting leatherback turtles. Last summer I had the amazing opportunity to travel to the Caribbean to work with Leatherback sea turtles and […]

In the world of Warnell, I believe anything is possible. It is the place where you learn, grow, and realize your own true passion and purpose. It is a place that inspires you every day to do what you love and love what you do. And as the semesters pass, without realizing it, it is […]

Networking – Blake Sherry

I have really enjoyed my time in Warnell and learning about the forestry profession. I may not be a stellar student, but I have above a 3.0 GPA and work to keep it that way. Grades are the most important measuring stick on a student’s resume (or so I have been told), but a lot […]

To be in class learning about some of the most interesting topics, like how bats catch insects flying […]

Camp Adventures – Shelby Telfer

A Warnellian Summer – Kiara Bailey

                  There are so many great things about Warnell that it is hard to talk about them all. The professors know your name and your interest. Classes are small and labs are really hands on, and the education is one of the best of the best! One other great thing that really stands about Warnell […]

Choose Wisely – Morgan Strickland

I’m sure you have all heard it a million times but let me tell you just once more. Each choice you make matters. With everything you do, you change your path ever so slightly until sometimes you’re facing the opposite direction. Speaking from experience, I can tell you my path has taken a few turns […]

Natural Resource Conferences – Kiara Bailey

Hey guys! My name is Kiara Bailey, and I’m a junior working on getting my bachelors in Wildlife and a minor in Ecology. I don’t know about you guys but to me, college seems to be speeding by, and I only have ideas about what I want to do once I graduate! It’s absolutely terrifying […]
