Get Involved!

Want to know what's going on in the department? Get involved with the Appalachian Geological Society (GeoClub) or the Appalachian Environmental Science Club, or sign up for some of our numerous outreach opportunities. For 2022, we have started pre-seminar meetups in the URL (RSW 021) at 3 pm on Fridays so new students can meet each other before seminar.

Be sure to always keep up to date with the weekly GES newsletter (below) for events, opportunities, internships, news, and anything else you may need to be successful in the department.
