Geography Awareness Week 2010

The Geography Faculty at Santa Fe College would like to wish everyone a Happy Geography Awareness Week!

Each day of the week in the foyer of the Library (Y Building) there will be a Geography Quiz. The individual who gets the most correct questions each day will win an atlas. Get the competitive bug and see how your knowledge matches up against other students. Answers will be posted next week. There is also a display of Geography opportunities at Santa Fe College!
