More To Geology Than Just Classes
WKU Geology club is a professional student organization that strives to build an educated
community of individuals interested in geology. The club acts to educate the public,
promote the geology department, support current members, aid members in academics
and outreach, and most importantly, have fun! Members of the club help others to
make connections with faculty and industry in order to build community and to aid
in the transition of joining the workforce. The club promotes the American Institute
of Professional Geologists, Geological Society of America, Association of Petroleum
Geologists, and the Kentucky Geological Survey.
WKU Geology club welcomes all who are interested. You don’t have to be a major to
join. The club will meet every two weeks with times to be announced at the beginning
of each semester.
The club also offers many fun activities and events to participate in! The club actively
fundraises by doing soup and sandwich, bake, and rock and mineral sales and other
activities. The money raised from that will go towards going on fun camping trips,
guest speakers, food during meetings, and so much more!
How can I be a part of the club?
The club is open to anyone at WKU - you do not need to be a geology major in order
to be a part of the fun. You can stop by any of the monthly meetings (usually posted
on flyers in EST) or contact one of the officers to find out more information.
