Field Trip Gallery

For many of our geography students, a highlight of their degree is their participation in the annual field trip, which has been running since 1969.  Below you can find photos from most of these trips.

Though we strive to keep the costs of participation manageable, for some students the field course is too great a cost.  We are therefore grateful for a generous gift from Shauneen and Michael Bruder, graduates of the College of Social Science in 1980, which provides $3500 annually to support student participation in the field course.

Starting in 2015, the Shauneen and Michael Bruder Geography Scholarship is available to students enrolled in the Field Course (Geog*4690) with a minimum 75% cumulative average and an identified financial need. Apply by October to Student Financial Services.

Thanks to Shauneen and Michael!
