Geology alum pursues graduate degree
Jennifer Miller Tully ’11 (left, with Dr. Michael Hudson and fellow geology alum Amanda Kozak '08)entered the M.S. program in Geology at Miami University this fall. She is pursuing a career in environmental geochemistry, an interest that developed through her undergraduate research on cadmium in children’s jewelry with Dr. Jeff Weidenhamer and on the geochrononology of Adirondack lowland rocks with AU geologist Dr. Michael Hudson. Jennifer is serving as a teaching assistant for two geology courses in addition to taking coursework of her own. More than 90% of our geology graduates successfully enroll in graduate school with financial support through teaching or research assistantships.
