Planning continues for AAPG’s first Spring Student
Expo, set March 16-18 at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Okla.
The Spring Expo, a follow-up to last fall’s successful Expo at
Rice University in Houston, is designed to mutually benefit geoscience
students interested in petroleum careers and petroleum industry
representatives seeking intern and full-time employees.
This Expo will provide the opportunity for students to showcase
their work in poster format and to network with industry representatives,
who are also invited to present exhibits to promote their exploration,
development and service activities. Over 60 companies have been
invited to participate in this event, including small/mid-size companies

This event is scheduled to take advantage of Spring Break for

exhibition sessions and interviews will be held the next day. The
Expo will end Saturday evening with a St. Patrick’s Day party and
