NESTVAL 2009 - Salem

Students and faculty members from BSC will join fellow geographers from New England and the St. Lawrence Valley for the annual meeting of NESTVAL on November 6-7. Dr. Domingo and Dr. Hayes-Bohanan will take a day off from EarthView to ensure that interested GeoBears get to the meeting in time for the annual Geography Bowl competition. With the help of games at GEO meetings, BSC came very close to winning the title last year. This is the time to start working out for the gold!

The department has arranged for lodging for students who wish to attend, as well as transportation. Space may be limited, so please sign up in the department office and register with NESTVAL if you wish to attend. The conference ends Saturday evening; students who wish to stay through Sunday should mention that when signing up. If there is enough interest, return rides may be available on both days.

Meanwhile, explore the meeting web site for information about student events, registration, and abstract submission. NESTVAL meetings are the perfect place to present preliminary research.
