Welcome!

This is the official website for the Geology Club at California State University, Sacramento. Here you will find information about the Club in general, as well as find links to our events and activities.
The Geology Club is an organization designed to support the Geology and Earth Science students at California State University, Sacramento as they work toward their degrees. The Club plays an integral role within the Geology Department by funding scholarships, hosting educational- and professional-enrichment events, providing tutoring, supporting research, and facilitating networking. The primary source of funding for all Club activities is the annual Rock Auction, now in its 14th year. All proceeds from the Rock Auction go directly back to the students in the form of scholarships and enrichment activities (think geology field trips outside of the classroom!) 
The Club also strives to provide vital networking opportunities for students. This is accomplished by connecting current students with alumni of the program. In addition to the alumni connection, the Club provides support to students attending local and national conferences such as the Association of Engineering Geologists (AEG) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU).
