Denis Barry, a senior Geography major, won first prize for his poster at the 2018 East Lakes Division of the American Association of Geographers (AAG) Annual Meeting held at Ohio Northern University this past weekend. The honor came with a $100 cash prize. In addition, faculty from Ohio State University, Central Michigan University, and Western Michigan University (among other schools) all worked to recruit him about their funded master’s degree programs in geography.
