Every year, as alumni return to their alma mater, geographers come back to campus for the UNA Geography Alumni Association Conference.

This year is the 13th annual conference and there will be events in Wesleyan Hall Oct. 5-6.

The conference will feature discussions on a wide array of topics including unmanned aircraft vehicles, drones and geospatial information.

The keynote speaker for Friday’s events will be Dr. Simon Donato, a geologist and host of the television series “Boundless.” He will speak about “Living the Boundless Life.”
