U. J. Noblet Forestry and Wood Products Building
Vaulting wood pillars, large woodcuts, maple paneling—the building symbolizes our commitment to educate students in natural resources. An original part of the School, the building is home to the Student Job Center and administrative offices.
It is named for Ubald J. Noblet, who served as the first department head from 1936–1962.
One of Michigan Tech's first hockey coaches, Ubald led our student athletes as well as our forestry program into the national arena.
Hesterberg Hall and Atrium
The airy, light-filled expanse celebrates our sense of place and the work we do. The large support beams represent trees; the roof structure, a forest canopy. The more than 50 flags on display represent the range of diverse backgrounds of our students, and the countries they served in as part of their degree programs.
Hesterberg Hall is made possible by the generosity of Gene Hesterberg, department head from 1962-1980.
Gene was known for providing advice and support to many young foresters, helping them get on track for careers in their field.
Horner Hall houses faculty and graduate student office spaces strategically located near many of the School's teaching and research labs.
The quiet atmosphere provides a relaxed setting to meet with undergraduate and graduate students, prepare for classes, and work on research projects.
The Hall is made possible by a gift from Robert and Virginia Horner. Robert grew up in the Upper Peninsula, helping his father at Horner Flooring of nearby Dollar Bay, known worldwide for hardwood gymnasium floors used in college and professional sports events.
"The buildings are so pretty. The labs got me geeked out"
