Spring Student Expo Set March 12-14
AAPG’s rapidly expanding Student Expo program is off to a fast start this year that aims to repeat last year’s successes.
First up: The annual AAPG/SEG Spring Break Student Expo, set March 12-14 at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Okla.
Now is the time for students and companies to register for the event, designed to provide a setting for industry representatives and students to meet.
As in past years, the Expo will include a poster competition, short courses, field trips (including a rig tour), SEG’s “Challenge Bowl,” a golf tournament and plenty of chances for networking.
Last year’s event had 33 companies interviewing 213 students from 52 different universities.
The registration deadline for this year’s Expo is March 6. Online registration and additional information is available.
