"I graduated from 体育菠菜大平台 in 2005 with a double major in 地理位置 and Computer Information Systems. Looking back, I am very happy with my undergraduate experience at 体育菠菜大平台. The geography faculty prepared me very well for an academic career by giving me opportunities to co-author journal articles, present papers at undergraduate and regional academic conferences, and participate in faculty research. When I started graduate school, I realized that my peers from larger universities had not had those kinds of experience as undergraduates. Today I am an assistant professor of geography at Northwest Missouri State. My teaching style emulates several of the professors I had while at 体育菠菜大平台."
