Treasurer: Lars Olson013
University of Washington Class of 2017
“Hi, I’m Lars! I’m a first year transfer student here at UW from Vancouver, WA who is double majoring in Environmental Science and Biology. I was really excited to join IFSA because it helped me find a more inclusive community on campus and get involved quickly. I love biking, hiking, and occasionally playing video games, but more than anything I love to get to know new forestry students!”
