Range Management Club

The Range Management Club exists to promote the knowledge and better management of North American rangelands and natural resources. Rangelands are complex and diverse systems that produce products such as food, fiber, forage, water, minerals, energy, wood, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities. As future managers of rangelands we are committed to understanding how these systems function, and to becoming equipped to manage them so they are able to sustainably produce the above products. As a club, every year we attend the annual meeting of the Society for Range Management where our members compete in several competitions including the Undergraduate Range Management Exam and Plant Identification Contest. Members of this club will have the opportunity to interact and make connections with other students and professionals in the field of Range Management from across North America.

Solar Car Club

We are striving to propagate interest in photovoltaic technology throughout the world and educate the community on the possibilities of a solar powered future. Our current goal is to build a functioning solar powered car that can compete in solar races held around the world. However, our vision lies beyond just building and racing a solar car. Ultimately, we want to show the world that solar energy is a plausible alternative and renewable energy resource. If we can educate people on the possibilities of a solar powered future, we can ensure that solar power will soon be developed into an energy resource that can rival fossil fuels, creating a brighter future for our planet.
