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 186. 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.

Sigma Gamma Epsilon (SGE) is the Earth Science Honors Society at UWEC. SGE is a student-run organization designed for students with an interest in the scholarship of geology. We meet ~ every other week (on Friday afternoons at 4 pm in Phillips 186 on those weeks when there is no talk scheduled for the Earth Science Seminar Series). At SGE meetings, UWEC students present their own research projects to a forum composed primarily of their fellow students. It is a chance for undergraduate students to get to know what research projects their classmates are doing, as well as to practice giving talks before upcoming meetings. In addition, SGE raises funds to help support student travel to regional, national, and international meetings, including meetings sponsored by the national SGE organization.
