Geology Club

The Geology Club at the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire is a student-run organization designed for any student with an interest in geology or the earth sciences to interact with others of the same interests. Geology Club participates in many group activities such as intramural sports like Ultimate Frisbee, clean-up of designated areas of lower campus, the invitation of earth science speakers, hiking/camping trips, and much more.

There is no cost to be a member and students from all disciplines are invited. Geology Club meetings are held Tuesdays at 5:30pm in Phillips 175. For announcements of when meetings and activities will be you must be on the geology department emailing list. If you are not a Geology major, contact our office to be added to the list.
