Graduate Field Experiences

Graduate students in Maine

Graduate students are invited to participate in an EPS-sponsored field trip prior to the start of fall term. The trip is organized by current graduate students who choose a destination region, plan and lead the trip, prepare the budget, and report on the trip upon return. In August 2016, 21 students visited Maine and New Hampshire, including Mt. Washington, Baxter State Park, and Acadia National Park (where the photo above was taken). Previous destinations include the Southwest US, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Spain, and Colorado. Contact Sarah Colgan at to learn more.
