WDCAG 2018

A quick report on this weekend’s WDCAG meeting in Edmonton. Two GATE faculty and six students attended the meeting in Edmonton: Travis Gingerich and Madelaine Bourdages presenting posters and oral presentations on their honours research and Melissa Koyanagi presenting some of her findings from research in GEOG 304 this semester.  Three other students joined us to take in the conference experience.

Our students represented GATE and UFV extremely well.  Travis brought home the best oral presentation by an undergraduate student award.  The student group also brought home the much coveted WDCAG Scavenger Hunt Award.

While the upcoming WDCAG is on our minds for this week, take note as well of the Association of Washington Geographers (AWG) meeting in Bellingham this May 19. Can’t make the WDCAG or research isn’t ready to present? The AWG is a great, very supportive venue for undergraduate research. Plus, an extra excuse to check out the downtown pub scene in B’ham in the evening!
