Student Clubs in SEES
The Geology Club provides the opportunity for students who are interested in geological sciences to learn local & regional geology, to interact among students, faculty, and industry leaders, and to involve relationship development among students, faculty and members of the community.
Activities include field trips, attending lectures/seminars of interest, scientific demonstrations and Rock & Mineral Sale during the Dad's and Mom's Weekends, and monthly club meeting.
If you are interested in joining the Geology Club, please e-mail email@example.com.
|The Environmental Science Club's purpose is to give Washington State University students who are studying environmental science and regional planning and related fields an opportunity to interact with their fellow peers who are interested in the well being of the environment and to work to improve the environment on campus and in the community. Meeting time to be announced in the fall. Contact by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.|
