Students and faculty will be available during this time to speak to current and potential students.  Some specific events include:
  • Majoring or Minoring in Environmental Sciences
  • Bismuth Crystal Growth Demonstration
  • Rotating Dynamics
  • Rocks inside and out
  • Hydrology across a Landscape
  • EES Graduates Recommendations to Current Students
  • Navigating D2L EES Student Resource Community
  • Welcoming Transfer Students

Location 2: Outside Room 238 Chemistry Building

Date: August 25, 2023

Time: 3:30 - 4:00 pm

Event Schedule:

3:30 - 4:00 pm Are you a major in another discipline, but interested in environmental science? EES is a dynamic and applied discipline that is fundamentally interdisciplinary - EES faculty are jointly appointed throughout the college and university. We want to reach out to students that would like to apply theoretical knowledge to the real-world problems addressed by EES. At this event, meet with faculty members to discuss double majoring or dual degree options.
