Society of Earth Science Students

About the Society of Earth Science Students:

The Society of Earth Science Students is an undergraduate club within the Geosciences department that is open to all majors who are interested in the study of Earth sciences and systems including: Geology, Geophysics, Earth Systems, Geography, Dendrochronology & Climatology. We host weekly meetings that are structured to keep the undergraduates informed about departmental talks, trips and research opportunities. Professors and graduate students often come to discuss their research, and industry professionals from mining, oil and government agencies, like the USGS, participate in discussions about employment opportunities. We have a strong presence at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and the Tucson Festival of Books, and we participate in other community outreach here in Tucson. The club also goes on organized hiking and camping trips, mining tours and museum visits.
