“The NE GSA 2019 meeting in Portland Maine was a valuable experience that enriched my understanding of geology. Attending presentations that ranged from glacial geology to hydrogeology enlightened me on the many different research topics geologists study. Presenting research is a great experience, albeit nerve-wracking when talking with high level academia/industry professionals (like keynote speaker Dr. Chan), as conducting research projects are an invaluable way to get field experience understanding a topic in geology that matches your interest.”
Along with our student presenters, up and coming students in the department also attended the meeting, and gained valuable experiences that they wished to share with you:
“As a freshman here at CSSU, this was my first GSA meeting. I’m glad to say that it was overall a great experience. I greatly enjoyed conversing with people from the many disciplines and sub-disciplines of geology. This GSA meeting certainly benefited my education and strengthened my interest in the geological sciences. I hope to repeat this great experience next year.”
“GSA was an amazing experience that provided me with the resources to further my education and my future career. Having attended GSA, I feel more confident making professional connections and exploring the different facets of the geological sciences. Not to mention the fact that the conference was extremely educational, and a great time to see my peers present their hard work!”
Congratulations to all the student presenters and attendees. You are all rock stars!
