    Greetings from the Syracuse University Geography Department!

    It’s hard to believe that the semester is starting. Where did the summer go?

    We are excited to welcome a new group of graduate and undergraduate students to campus. Check out our graduate student website to meet our newest students.

    We have a great line up of colloquium speakers this year, including some of our own graduate students. See here for a schedule of talks. If you’re in Syracuse, be sure to stop by.

    Our departmental newsletter was published over the summer. If you didn’t receive a copy, you can view it here. It highlights what our students and faculty have been up to and includes an interview with Prof. Sallie Marston, the Donald Meinig Undergraduate speaker this year.

    If you’re a prospective graduate student, check out our webpage or email Prof. Tom Perreault, our Graduate Director. We’d love to hear from you!

    If you’re an undergraduate student, be sure to check out our webpage , as well as – a website created by our geography majors. On both sites, you can learn more about our geography major, courses, and the kinds of things you can do with a geography degree. Prof. Jane Read, our Director of Undergraduate Studies, is also happy to speak with you.

    Best of luck to everyone in the new academic year!
