Ocean & Earth Sciences Major | Class of 1988
How has being an Ocean & Earth Sciences graduate from ODU helped shape your professional success?
It afforded me a tremendous opportunity to network with professionals who came from the same program. To this day, I am still networking and sharing success stories with many fellow ODU alumni in the environmental profession.
What advice would you give to current Monarchs in Ocean & Earth Sciences?
First, find and maintain relationship with a good strong mentor. Second, build a rapport and networking with your fellow oceanography classmates and maintain that connection through your professional career. Lastly, always seek out academic and professional educational opportunities (seminars, workshops, etc.).
