Last Chance!

Today is the last chance to be a part of The Great Pie Incident of 2016! The goal is to raise $500 and 100% of all funds will go directly towards the upcoming Geo Club trip to New Zealand. 

At last count JC Creveling had quite a lead with Kaplan Yalcin and Laurie Becker running close for second place. Jamond Van Den Hoek is safely in the middle. Advisors Mary Chuinard and Casey Menn are far behind. Don’t let them feel unloved!

The Pie-ing will take place today at 5:15 pm in the Burt Hall common area in front of 193, a great location for fun pictures. Donations will be accepted up to 5 pm.

The title of her talk is: 'Identifying climatically resilient or sensitive locations in the North California Current using partitioned beta-diversity'

Caren Barcelo is co-advised by Lorenzo Ciannelli (OSU COEAS) and Richard Brodeur (NOAA).
