"The Geography Department at HSU truly prepared me for the work of a professional geographer. Beyond the technical skills that I learned at HSU, I also use my research and writing skills daily. I entered the workforce with the confidence necessary to succeed."

"As a Botany major coming from the Biological Sciences department, working in the Geography department with Rosemary Sherriff, a physical geography professor, has been enriching. I've helped graduate students with their field research in the Headwaters Forest Reserve and the Bald Hills Redwood National Park, learned how to conducted technical tree core analysis, been a part-time field biologist, received a research fellowship and many other great experiences. Since graduating this last May, I've been a research technician for Prof Sherriff and plan to explore North America on a motorcycle."

"As a recent graduate from the Geography program, I feel the education that I received has prepared me well for a research-based world and graduate school. I presented at two professional conferences and submitted work in the student poster-map competitions, backed with encouragement and support from the department. I feel confident with the geographical skills I learned, not only out in the field, but also in the classroom and labs."
