There was an open house and alumni event at the Oklahoma State University Department of Geography to celebrate the department’s new home in the newly- renovated Murray Hall. More than 100 people attended the two-day event in Stillwater.

Events included a golf outing, GPS and geo-caching events, tours of the historic Murray Hall and OSU campus, and two evening socials.

The Keso Seminar Room was dedicated at the event. The room was named after Edward Keso who was the first head of geography hired by Oklahoma A&M in 1946.
