Spring Awards Banquet

Highlights of the Year

For those of you who could not attend our 2018 Spring Awards Banquet, we hope that you enjoy the photos, highlights, and a magnificent field-trip video from this year’s banquet, which one staff member declared to be “the best banquet we ever had, by far”. This year, we awarded 63 undergraduate and graduate students 21 distinct awards totaling $138,300, all funded by gifts from our generous alumni and friends. Make sure to watch the remarkable video of the March/April 2018 field trip to New Zealand led by Professors Harold Tobin and Shaun Marcott (also funded nearly entirely by alumni donations). Many thanks to members of our Geology Graduate Student Association for organizing and managing an event that I’m certain will be remembered for years to come. -- Chuck DeMets -- Chair --
