Spring 2022 Exit Talks

We were excited to host a very special event highlighting three years' worth of Exit Talks by PhD students! Friends, family, and the larger Geography community joined us on Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13 to celebrate the work of our amazing PhD students and connect with one another.

Here you will find the program for the event, which was hosted in 575 McCone Hall (on campus) as well as virtually via Zoom. Refreshments and great conversation was guaranteed.

Spring 2022 Commencement

The Geography Commencement ceremony was held on Monday, May 16th, from 9:30am - 12:30pm in the Pauley Ballroom. We were excited to honor all of our Geography students who graduated during the pandemic and weren't able to participate in-person as well as our current, graduating class, celebrating Fall 2019 - Fall 2022 graduates. After our ceremony, we gathered on the 5th floor balcony for a champagne toast.

This event was FREE! Even if folks didn't know someone graduating, we encouraged them to attend and celebrate their fellow Geographers on this eventful day! Attendees were able to join either in-person or virtually via Zoom. Click here to view the Geography Commencement Program and click here to view photos from the event.
