Ohio University Geology Club

The Geology Club's goal is to bring together majors and non-majors alike to further promote the field of geology. The club often holds weekly meetings in Clippinger Laboratories.

The club also works to promote interactions between upperclassmen and underclassmen, participate in tutoring and other volunteer activities, discuss career development, and socialize. Future trip ideas include local hikes, caving expeditions at WVACS (West Virginia Association for Cave Studies), Hocking Hills, Mammoth Cave and more.
