Media Advisory -- Student Research Poster Session

Members of the media, including reporters, photographers and camera crews, are welcome to attend the annual awards reception and student research poster session hosted by the Department of Geography and Environmental Resources at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The event is from 3 to 4 p.m. on Friday, May 1, in Faner Hall, Room 2533.

Research posters demonstrating at least one semester’s worth of research will be on display, and the student research teams will be available for comment or interview. In addition, several of the scholarship sponsors may be available. Besides having the opportunity to see what current research topics are motivating today’s geography, GIS and environmental students, media will have the opportunity to meet this year’s top award winners.
