Practicing Geography Week is April 14 – 20

PracticingGeographyWeek_2014Please join us during the week of April 14-20 for PRACTICING GEOGRAPHY WEEK – a week full of career-focused events specifically for undergraduate students interested in Geography, Global Environmental Studies (GES), and Earth System Science (ESS)!

Practicing Geography week was developed to give our undergraduate students a chance to explore various career and graduate school options, while also gaining opportunities to network with some of our faculty, current graduate students, and alumni from our programs.
