Geology Club

geologyclubRutgers Geology Club is a great place to meet fellow rock nerds and explore New Jersey. The club goes on frequent hikes (free of charge) to areas of geologic interest including state parks, off-the-beat trails, and even mines and caves. New Jersey is a great place for hiking as well as fossil digging, offering a myriad of locations close to Rutgers. We also have connections with scientists at the Museum of Natural History in New York City, who are generous enough to bring us “behind-the-scenes” to see more than just the exhibits on display for the general public.

We also host a number of events aimed at helping geology majors, minors, and others interested in related earth and planetary sciences learn about the various undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities present in the earth sciences. We host an annual Career Knight, a networking event and Q+A panel where Rutgers alumni talk to students about their experiences in the field and the workforce. We also hold an annual field camp information session where upperclassmen talk about their experiences at field camp, a requirement for geology majors, and give advice. In addition, we have held Q+A panels with graduate students and postdoctoral researchers regarding careers in research and academia and their experiences with graduate school.

We are always open to focusing our activities for the semester on the particular interests of our members and are pliable in what we can offer. In past years, we have put together camping trips and even a softball team for the intramural sports league here at Rutgers.
