Hi All!

Reminder that we are having a GeoClub meeting tomorrow Friday September 30th at 11:30 in Heroy 333C. We will be discussing organizing for the camping trip and fundraising. Hope to see you then!


GeoClub is headed to the Herkimer Diamond Mines (~90 min away) on the weekend of October 8th/9th. We will head out early on Saturday, mine for some cool samples, camp Saturday night, and return on Sunday. Let me know ASAP if you are interested in coming so I can begin to get a head count!


We are also thinking of selling calendars as a fundraiser, so let me know if you have any ideas where to sell them, or send me any cool pictures of things geologically related that I could put in the calendar.

Please bring a lunch and feel free to bring something to share if you’d like. We'll be discuss what we’d like to do for our fall camping trip as well as any other events you’d like to see occur this year! Apple picking? Geology movie night? We want your input to make this year gneiss! Hope to see you there!

CNY Earth Science Student Symposium

Apr 11, 2014, 7:30 AM-6:00 PM

Heroy GL Lobby

Every year our Geology Club members organize a graduate and undergraduate student symposium for earth science students around New York to showcase their research. It is a great opportunity for students to practice talking about their research in a public forum with their peers, professors and professionals from around the area. Any earth science (or closely-related discipline) from any college or university is welcome to submit an abstract. In the past, we have had students travel from as far as Buffalo and Rutgers to present their work. We typically have representatives from multiple environmental consulting firms in attendance to talk with students about their work and possible job/internship opportunities. In addition, we have 2-3 invited speakers give talks about relevant earth science topics. If you would like to submit an abstract or attend as an industry representative/sponsor, please check the Symposium page of this website for more details.
