Giving to the Department of Geosciences 

The Department of Geosciences takes great pride in the “sense of family” that we have maintained ever since our beginnings in 1965.  Your contribution to the Department enriches the experience for current and future students, faculty, and staff, and helps to maintain the atmosphere that you enjoyed.  Contributions have been used toward special student scholarships and awards, classroom multimedia upgrades, field trips for courses, and other Departmental activities.
