Enjoy Our Inspiring Facilities
The vaulting wood pillars, the large woodcuts, the maple paneling in the building—they all symbolize our aspiration to educate students in natural resources.
Originally built in 1967, the U. J. Noblet Forestry and Wood Products Building was expanded in 2000 with the addition of Horner Hall and the Hesterberg Atrium.
