Once you’ve declared Geology and Environmental Geosciences as your Major or Minor, it’s important that you establish regular contact with your advisor, your professors, and with the department office staff. They can be tremendous resources for you and help you maximize your college experience.
For example, there might be scholarships, internships or new sources of financial aid, for which you qualify. To find out what’s available – and the eligibility requirements – contact the geology office.
Part-time jobs, internships, service learning and volunteering will play an integral part in your preparation for the future. The faculty and staff in your major area will provide you with wonderful networking opportunities.
Extracurricular activities can enhance your classroom experiences. There are more than 150 clubs and organizations for you to consider, most of which will help you hone your leadership skills, help you connect with students who share your interests, and in some cases, expand your academic experience. As soon as you realize that Geology and Environmental Geosciences may be your new home, or at least a place to visit regularly, please join the Geology Club and come see what the program has in store for you!!!
**If you missed the Geology Majors, Minors, and Groupies Meeting on Friday, here's the slide show (here's part2) that was shown (it's a big file, so opening on a computer is best). Let us know if you have any questions!
