Are you at UMass with international development or water-related job or graduate school questions?

Join me for moving office hours! On alternate Fridays from 1-2pm, I’ll be walking laps around the campus pond according to the route below. You can meet me at the benches near the point noted on the map to join me (I’ll be circling there every 8-10 minutes), or you can move counterclockwise to meet up. If that path is not accessible to you, we can stay  near the benches near the point marked on the map below as ‘meeting point’ to communicate. Please note this is weather-dependent; check here for updates.

Scheduled dates: Feb 23, March 9, March 23, April 6, April 20, April 27

Current status: On for Feb 23 (updated Feb 20).
