What is Geo-Colloquium (GeoQ)?

Geo-Colloquium, fondly known as GeoQ, is a speaker series organized by the Jolliffe Club that gives graduate students, faculty members, and undergraduate students the opportunity to present their research or other topics of interest to the department in a low-stress, supportive environment. GeoQ is an excellent chance to practice a presentation before a conference, teach the department about your research, or share a cool field work experience or industry experience!
