2022 Geological Society of America Meeting, (GSA Connects 2022) Denver, CO, Oct. 8-12

The CMU’s Geosciences Program was well represented at the annual GSA meeting in Denver this fall.  Ten CMU Geology students attended the meeting and a total of eight students were involved as presenting authors in several poster presentations. Mentoring faculty and GSA attendees also included CMU Geosciences faculty Andres Aslan, Greg Baker, Rex Cole, Cassie Fenton, and Javier Tellez.
 
In addition to the student research presentations, our students attended numerous talks and poster presentations, short courses and career-related meetings as well as learned about graduate school opportunities. 
 
Attending professional meetings such as GSA is strongly encouraged by the CMU Geosciences Program and while we realize that these meetings are difficult to attend during the course of the academic year, we think that they can be hugely beneficial to the professional development of our students. Below are several “testimonials” about the GSA meeting from several of our Geology students that we hope will help motivate future Geology students to attend such meetings.
