Peace Corps Information Session

It’s never too early to learn more about Peace Corps service, and how your forestry skills can be put to work to help people in another country.  While students typically apply to Peace Corps service at the beginning of their senior year for departure after graduation, it’s beneficial for students to talk with a Peace Corps recruiter even during their freshman, sophomore and juniors years, as there are things they can do early on to make themselves more competitive when they apply. Peace Corps recruiter, Scot Roskelley, will conduct a Peace Corps info session at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16 in Strand 147. For individuals who can’t make the session, he is scheduling one-on-ones with students while he’s on campus the 16th through 19th to explain how the program works. You can email him at to schedule an appointment.

He says that besides being a life changing experience, Peace Corps service can open doors for both employment and grad school. There are currently 32 forestry openings (all in Senegal) openings that depart September 23 of next year!
