Dallas Piper, major in Geography (Spring 2020)
Dallas is a well-rounded geographer, who has excelled in all areas of the discipline and is well respected by his colleagues and the faculty. Moreover, Dallas was engaged in extracurricular activities in the Department. In particular, he was an active member and officer in the Geography Club. And, like many of his peers in geography, understands that to truly understand the geography of a place, one must travel there. To this end, Dallas has participated in two study abroad ventures: one just this past spring in Iceland, where he sampled as much of the local culture as he could, including eating Puffin eggs, a local delicacy, but not for the faint of heart. His other study abroad venture involved travel with Drs. Johnson and Lennartson to SE Asia, where his activities were no less adventurous. We fully expect Dallas to continue his lust for travel well after graduation. Dallas, keep up the great attitude and your sense of adventure!
