Summer Semester? With four feet of snow left to shovel?!

Yes!  It’s that time to look ahead and prepare to make the most of our summer months, especially for our ESF students and students from other campuses.

Preparations are well underway for ESF’s Summer Semester. Registration opened this week!

The Summer 2015 schedule of classes  includes  online,  on-campus, and a variety of field-experiences held in locations near and far.  All of which are, of course, offered at very affordable SUNY tuition rates.

Please join our outstanding group of instructors for a productive and enjoyable summer course experience.  And please help us to invite and encourage others to explore ESF Summer courses that will help them to catch up, get ahead and make the most of their summer.

We welcome your thoughts and questions and we look forward to working with you.

All our best,
