Geology Club of Kutztown University
(faculty advisor)
Geology Club brings together students with a common interest in the science of Earth processes by organizing experiential learning activities such as hikes, field trips, and picnics.  We also seek to promote Earth sciences with pre-college young people and contribute positively to the greater community through philanthropic service.
