Getting involved

SFA’s geology students have plenty of opportunities to get involved in a variety of student clubs and organizations. Our geology clubs are very active, and members enjoy a variety of events, from attending conventions and taking field trips to participating in community service projects.

As a member of one of our organizations, you’ll get to know your professors and your fellow Lumberjacks, and you’ll build relationships and skills that will help you make the most of your time at SFA.

For more information about geology clubs and organizations, you can contact your faculty adviser to find the best fit for your interests.
