Keep in Touch!

We take pride in the sense of community that has characterized the Department of Geosciences since our beginnings as the Department of Earth and Space Sciences in 1965.  As time goes on, our departmental family has grown and we are more spread out through space and time than ever before – making it harder to keep in touch. 

Over the years we’ve often relied on the Alumni Association to provide us with your e-mail and conventional addresses.  Recognizing that many of you might prefer to avoid general Alumni Association promotions and instead have more direct communication with the department, we’ve decided to again gather our own address information. 

To that end, we’ve created a survey we’d like you to complete to give us your basic contact information and also, if you like, let us know what you’ve been up to.  We will not share this outside of the department without first seeking your approval. 

We would love to hear from you however you wish to contact us.  We'd be happy for an e-mail, “snail mail” or even a phone call  (631-632-8200). 

You may also want to create or update your profile with the Alumni Association:

The Alumni Association offers you some choices regarding what kinds of communication you’d like to receive from them but we really have little influence over what they do.  On the other hand, if we don’t have contact information for our alums, we will use their information to contact you if they have any. 

We look forward to hearing from you and keeping you up to date on what’s happening in our Department of Geosciences.
