Learn More About the Geography Honors Experience from Current Students!

Are you a Geography Major and interested in the Departmental Honors Program? If so, tomorrow is your opportunity to ask fellow classmates more about the Honors experience! Just drop by Mary Gates Hall (Commons West) tomorrow afternoon from 2:30-4:00 to see the research conducted by Kevin, Richard, and Breanna, three of our current honor students. Poster sessions provide a great opportunity to chat about research:

Breanna Hudson / The Comfort of Our Separate Cities”: Perceptions of Sexualized Space and Safety in Seattle

Kevin Mason / Moving to Utopia: A Quantitative Analysis of Internal Migration to Brasília, Brazil

Richard McGovern / Saving Our Buses: Optimizing the Equity and Efficiency of Our Public Transportation System

UW Geography Story Published by UW Today


In February we posted a story describing UW student Mollie Holmberg’s work with Dr. Luke Bergmann, and her opportunity to present their findings to the US Congress through the 18th Annual Posters on the Hill organized by the Council on Undergraduate Research. Since this post, Mollie has not only successfully presented at this poster session (and visited the offices of both of Washington State’s US Senators and one of the state’s US Representatives!), but has also just been featured in a recent story by UW Today, the University’s news office. Visit UW Today to get an update on Mollie’s great work!
