Advising

The Advising Center of the College of Natural Resources and Environment serves our students and their parents, as well as the faculty and staff of the College. They support students from their first interaction throughout their time at Virginia Tech as they develop and pursue their academic and career goals. Their holistic approach to advising empowers students to take ownership of the decision-making process as they become independent problem solvers who invent the future.

Melissa Cumbia is the Academic Advisor for Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation, including the Water Degree.  Contact her at mcumbia@vt.edu or (540)231-0650.
