Outstanding Senior Awards for 2010-2011

The annual CWU Geology Spring Potluck was held in the hallways of Lind Hall on May 26th. A second year of indoor picnicking due to the cool and rainy weather we've been having so much of this spring.

There was a great turnout of faculty, staff, students and even faculty emeriti for the event. Along with chowing down on good food, they had an opportunity to congratulate this year's Outstanding Senior Award winners.
