Jeff all bundled up taking notes
"At MSU Denver, the Meteorology program sparked my interest for the statistics of weather, climatology, and how the modern change in climate will impact Earth and its inhabitants. The Meteorology professors guided me to graduate school where I completed a M.S. and Ph.D. program at the Climate Change Institute, University of Maine. I enjoyed my time at MSU Denver so much that I invited Dr. Keah Schuenemann to be part of my graduate committee where she continues to help me grow as a climate scientist." Dr. Auger is now working on a post-doc in Brazil.

Wendy working with people
"Working through earning a BS degree in Meteorology from MSU not only helped to satisfy my deep curiosity about the world around me, it also simultaneously allowed me to land a student assistant job at NCAR. These things together opened many doors, prepared me for grad school in atmospheric science, and launched my incredibly rewarding career focused on education of others in weather ocean, and climate science."

"The Meteorology program at MSU Denver helped me gain the confidence necessary to forecast for a large audience. I’m now a broadcast meteorologist and storm chaser at KMTR NBC 16 News in Eugene, OR. I would not have had this opportunity without the support from my fellow meteorology students and amazing professors."
