Department Facilities

Seaborg Center and West Science (Campus Pano)

 

Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences classroom space, labs and faculty offices are located in the two buildings that make up the Seaborg Science Complex: Weston Hall and West Science. This state-of-the-art facility hosts a combined GIS and a remote sensing lab. The lab features laptop docking stations, a wide-format plotter, and a mainframe server, as well as access to GIS and remote sensing software installed on NMU issued laptops.

The EEGS Department is involved in creating and maintaining the Outdoor Learning Area just outside the science buildings. Extending learning off campus, faculty and students visit the Upper Peninsula’s many rivers, streams, lakes, hills, and plains, as well as NMU’s Longyear Forest, a 120-acre woodland area located a few miles from campus. Students also actively learn along the shores of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area, which is a mere 10-minute walk from campus.
