OSU Earth, Environment, & Life Sciences Virtual Career Fair

If you haven’t already, claim your virtual appointments ASAP with employers for the OSU Earth, Environment, & Life Sciences Virtual Career Fair. Appointments must be set up in advance – they are not drop-ins.

Once signed up, you will join the fair this Wednesday 10/26/2022 by logging into Handshake and starting your 10-minute individual chats and/or 30-minute group chats. Please be on time for these. You might not be able to get into the sessions late. Remember you don’t need to attend the whole career fair time block, just your booked sessions. Also, remember to add an updated resume to Handshake if possible. Not required, but a best practice for sure.

2022 Joint Campus Conference and Environmental Sciences Research Colloquium

2022 Joint Campus Conference and Environmental Science Research Colloquium 

The 2022 Research Colloquium hosted by the Association of Environmental Science Students with keynote speaker Dr. J. Drew Lanham

This is an annual event hosted by students for students who are interested in environmental science to come together and either share their research, or learn about the diverse array of environment-related research projects happening at PSU, OSU and UO through a lightning talk session and oral presentations.

The joint conference invites all students from PSU, OSU, UO and will be open to the public. The goal of the event is to help foster a broader involvement in and dissemination of environmental science on campus and in Portland. We hope to further expand our audience and enrich the experience for students by hosting a keynote speaker, Dr. J. Drew Lanham from Clemson University. Dr. Lanham will be speaking about his research on songbird ecology, as well as the African-American role in natural-resources conservation.

This event will be held in the Native American Student and Community Center on Portland State University campus and catered by Chipotle.


Proof of coid-19 vaccination and valid ID will be required for non-Portland State University students
