What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
I'm just starting my second semester here, and I'll note one thing - the people here are extremely friendly and enthusiastic, but definitely are NOT your typical college crowd. We're not all hippies like you'd expect, but you'll begin to notice that us stumpies (including the professors!) have some odd little eccentricities that you'll either find totally charming, or just plain weird. The campus as a whole (small as it is) tends to reflect the people here, and all of it creates an amazing sense of community.

The friendliest people are at ESF. Everyone is very nice and excepting of each other. The professors are close to their students and I couldn't have picked a better school for environmental education.
