EPS students travel to the lecture series hosted by the UCONN – Avery Point Marine Sciences Program 1-2 times a semester. The selected lectures cover topics consistent with EPS course material, to promote a greater understanding of the coursework. In addition to the lecture series, students are also invited to take a tour of the Marine Sciences facilities, as well as get an up close and personal look at the research equipment housed at the university.

National Undergraduate Research Observatory
4-5 students are invited to travel to the National Undergraduate Research Observatory (graduate and undergraduate students) with Dr. Dawson once per school year. The National Undergraduate Research Observatory (NURO) is supported by the Northern Arizona University Physics and Astronomy Department and provides an opportunity for WCSU to reserve a 31-inch telescope for several consecutive nights. During their time at NURO students work on collaborative and independent research at night. During the day, students visit landmarks in Northern Arizona (e.g. The Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, etc.). Students are responsible for all souvenir and food expenses as well as their flight into Phoenix, ground transportation and lodging is provided in Arizona by WCSU.
