Dr. Clint Willson

Join LSU Center for River Studies Director Clint Willson for an informative talk about the powerful body of water in our own backyard: the Lower Mississippi River.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for networking and light refreshments, and the talk will start at 6 p.m. Remember, people of all ages are welcome, so please spread the word and join us for a fun and informative night!

Louisiana Sea Grant  will host the Coastal Connections competition at Louisiana State University on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 11:30 a.m.in Dalton J. Woods Auditorium in the Energy, Coast & Environment Building.  The competition, modified from the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) approach to research communication, was an exercise in developing academic, presentation and research communication skills while supporting the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research. Graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research topic and its significance using two slides. Coastal Connections focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas and crystallize their research discoveries.
