I'm originally from Oklahoma City and I will say OU has one of the best programs. It might be the amount of weird weather in Oklahoma. What type of meterology do you enjoy? Are you interested in hurricanes? Then Florida might be a good place. Snow excites you? Alaska might be good.

The National Weather Service has a list of colleges with programs: ok" target="_blank">

Hi Allison

While I have not recruited specifically for Environmental Science positions, I have found that the best way to find out about any career is to go online and ask. I used Google. Here is what I found. If you look at multiple sites look for consistencies in what they say. Below are a few sites to get you started.

Hope this helps. Feel free to reach back out.
