Welcome HSU Fisheries Biology graduates.  We are anxious to keep in touch and share fish stories!  Below are some recent items of interest to our alums:

Photo of the Allen Family.In May 2008, the Fisheries Biology Department formally recognized George Allen for his contributions to the Fisheries Program and dedicated the first "recognition plaque" in honor of a retired HSU Fisheries Faculty member.   To see the George Allen plaque click here.  In 2011, Jim Welsh was honored with a plaque in recognition of his over twenty years of contributions to the Fisheries Biology Department. To see the Jim Welsh plaque click here. We have recently added plaques for John DeWitt and for Richard Ridenhour . We are working on developing similar plaques for all past retired faculty members and to create a "Wall of Fame" on the second floor of our building so that all of these individuals will always be remembered for their contributions to our fine program.

photo - Terry RoelofsAfter 36 years of service, Terry Roelofs formally retired in June 2007. Terry was an inspiration to hundreds of HSU Fisheries graduates, was selected as the American Fisheries Society's first Educator of the Year, administered marriage vows to a large number of HSU students, and was the lynchpin of our freshwater fisheries option.  At the September 2007 National American Fisheries Society meeting in San Francisco, more than 150 HSU Fisheries alums gave Terry a grand recognition celebration (supported by alumni donations).  How can we ever replace Terry?

We would very much like to hear about what you are doing now. Complete and submit the alumni information form and let us know if you are willing to have your email and/or mailing addresses posted. Visit the alumni address list to locate other alumni.

We always enjoy highlighting the accomplishments of our former students.   Please let us know when you have done something noteworthy.  Submit notable achievements to the Department Chair and we will post them on these pages.

We need our alumni now more than ever.  Help us with recruitment efforts by spreading the good word about your experiences with the HSU Fisheries Biology program.  We also hope you will consider a financial contribution to the program.
