What It's All About

The Mississippi State University Student Chapter of the Society of American Foresters is an active part of a nationally-recognized professional organization. Its purpose at MSU is to promote professionalism and fellowship among student members, to aid in the advancement of forestry at MSU, and to gain social experience with other professional foresters. Student chapter objectives are attained through the involvement in SAF activities at the local, state, and national level. Students enrolled in the College of Forest Resources at MSU are eligible for membership in the chapter, which meets monthly. Eligible students are encouraged to join because active membership in this professional organization leads not only to individual advancement in the forestry profession, but also to advancement of the profession. The faculty advisor of the MSU SAF Student Chapter/Forestry Club is Dr. Robert Grala.
