Geoscience Day 2018

On May 4th, 2018 we held our annual Geoscience Day Research Symposium and Awards Banquet.  This event took place in the Student Union and included about 75 attendees including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, alumni and members of the UConn administration.  The day’s events included research talks, a poster session, a keynote address, catered lunch and awards ceremony.  This is an exciting day every year, when the UConn Geosciences community comes together to celebrate a year of hard work.
