Life After E&ES

We are proud of the many successes of our alumni.  Our alums have distinguished themselves in the scientific community as well as the public and private sectors.  The E&ES department strives to maintain a connection with our alumni to continue enjoy and learn from one another across the decades. 

We have created a virtual community through the Earth and Environmental Sciences Alumni LinkedIn group.  Here the department and alums can post news and events.
