The Geology Department isn’t just an awesome way to learn about rocks, it’s a great way to meet other rockin’ people, too! Liquidus is a Thursday afternoon event where geology majors, professors and other geology enthusiasts congregate to eat, drink, and be merry. Everyone is welcome and it’s a great way to chat with fellow students and professors outside of class.
Department Field Trip
Each year after the classes resume, the students, faculty, and staff take off on a 3-4 day trip to some amazing geologic locations in the southwest. It’s a great way to start the summer and visit some fantastic sites! Recent trips include going to the eastern Sierra Nevada (2010), Zion National Park (2011), the California’s central coast (2012), Mineral King (Sequoia National Park, 2013), and Mt. Shasta/Medicine Lake volcanoes (2014)
