Geography grad becomes Air Force pilot

When 2nd Lt. Nolan Malloy first stepped onto Oklahoma State University’s campus as a freshman, he never imagined he would use his geography degree to join the military. Six years, dozens of flight hours and one commission later, he knows he is where he is meant to be. Malloy is an Air Force pilot stationed at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma, while he finishes his flight training, and he is thankful to OSU for helping him get there.

Mapping new directions: Cartography Services manager builds program success

Wed, May 15, 2019

Michael Larson’s interest in geography began when he was an engineering major enrolled in a general education summer class. “World Regional Geography really opened up the world for me,” Larson said. “It was the first textbook I ever read cover to cover. It was fascinating, and it showed me a different direction that I could go. I had taken drafting courses for engineering. I found that drafting work also fit well with a geography degree. And that was pretty much it.”

Greiner: Geography is more than just countries and capitals

Wed, Jul 18, 2018

Many people oversimplify the concept of geography, thinking of it as memorizing maps. Speak with Alyson Greiner, head of the Department of Geography, and she will explain how much more interesting it is than that. For example, as a cultural historical geographer, she specializes in the similarities and differences between America and Australia. She is fascinated by the ways Oklahoma’s landscape changed as a part of the New Deal projects during the Great Depression, including eradicating malaria. She even explains the northward migration of the sweet-tea line – the prevalence of that drink has historically been one way to differentiate the South from its neighboring regions, but that boundary is moving, or at least blurring, of late.
