On June 15th, outside Ellison Hall in our courtyard, the Department of Geography held it’s annual Geography Graduation Reception, from 3:30-5:30pm. Student’s families and friends were all welcome! We awarded a group of students with various awards, and after, enjoyed a reception full of laughter, excitement and photos documenting the celebratory weekend.
We would like to acknowledge and thank a few students who have gone above and beyond, awarding Briant Fabela, Jason Granados, and Riley Anderson with the Outstanding Service to the Geography Department Award. These students provided leadership as officers of the Geography Club, dedicated to increasing Geography’s presence on campus.
Awarded to the graduating senior who has majored in Geography and has attained the highest overall grade point average, is the Chair’s Award for Excellence in Geography. This year’s recipient is Zifan Wang, with a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA.
Congratulations to our graduating class of 2018!
This includes 89 students, 39 of whom will earn the Bachelor of Arts, 30 with a Bachelor of Arts with a GIS Emphasis, and 20 earning the Bachelor of Science in Physical Geography. Thirteen of our graduates have earned a double major.
