OBEE Grad Life

Cutting-edge research in a collaborative context

OBEE grad students equal those at any major research university in aptitude, ambition, and accomplishment. They work with internationally-recognized faculty who, like them, have chosen an academic trail-less-travelled but pursue their science with full intensity. They conduct research in our beautiful backyard of the Northern Rockies, in modern labs and facilities on-campus, and at field sites and collaborating labs around the world. And, perhaps most importantly, they work and learn (and play) together. The Interdisciplinary Collaborative Network (ICN), a grad-driven organization with its roots in OBEE, exemplifies this cohesive spirit (image above from an ICN retreat).
