Heart SESE Feb 14th

The 2020 SESE Research Review will be Friday, February 14 in the Illini Union Ballroom.

The Research Review is the festive annual gathering where graduate students, faculty, and research-active undergraduates display their research and socialize. Researches from throughout SESE present posters, typically over 70 in total, and a few take the stage to present one of the ever-popular 5-minute “lightning talks.” The photo contest never fails to showcase the incredible Earth and Society photography captured by members of our school.


RSVP here so we can plan for refreshments.
