Randy Bertolas, professor of geography at Wayne State College, will present “Geography Education: Why Now More Than Ever” at 2 p.m. Sept. 26 in Hardin Hall, Room 228.

Bertolas was born and raised in the perpetually frozen North Woods just south of International Falls, Minnesota. He attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth and was studying geography in his dorm room the night the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior Nov. 10, 1975.
Subsequently, he earned his graduate degrees in geography from the University of Vermont and from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
