International Forestry Students Association, OSU Student Chapter


OSU-IFSA was founded in October 2005, and is currently one of five active chapters in the U.S. IFSA represents forestry students from all over the world, facilitates communication among members, and offers opportunities for student exchanges, seminars, excursions and forestry competitions. IFSA now includes 52 forestry student associations in 33 countries. It is headquartered in Freiburg, Germany.

OSU-IFSA aims to enrich the formal education of OSU students by giving them a more global perspective on forestry issues; contribute to professional preparation for forestry students; promote networking among students and professionals from several disciplines; encourage improvements in forestry and natural resources education internationally; and provide opportunities to socialize with students from many countries.

Regardless of the emphasis on forestry, the chapter is open to all OSU students and all topics related to conservation and natural resources find a forum at our club.
