2011 San Francisco AGU Reception a Success


On Dec 7, 2011, EESI co-hosted a reception with the Departments of Geography, Geosciences, and Meteorology for all Penn State faculty, students, and alums at the Annual American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. More than 130 people attended the event in the Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel to enjoy food and drinks together overlooking Market Street in downtown San Francisco. Students and alums from the three departments, plus from programs in Energy and Mineral Engineering, Ecology, Biology, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Crop and Soil Science were in attendance. A few alumni of online programs were also in attendance and were pleased to meet their online advisors. Other attendees came from locations as far away as Scotland, Australia, and South Africa to attend the AGU meeting. Friends from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, National Science Foundation, and University of Texas Austin and other institutions were also in attendance.
