Undergraduate Survival Guide – We designed a tri-fold brochure containing essential information every geoscience undergrad needs to know and personally delivered over 500 to lectures at the beginning of the year.
Mentorship Program - GeoSociety links undergraduates with graduate students for advisement on navigating their bachelors degree and preparing for the next step after graduation.
Adopt-a-spot – We worked with Campus Facilities to clear a planter outside Science and Research 1 to repurpose as an educational rock garden. Our dream is for professors to take classes out to the garden to examine samples. GeoSociety was award a $500 NSM HHMI creating communities mini-grant in support of this effort.
Winter Trip - Each year GeoSociety organizes a week-long trip that focuses on geotourism. This year we included a research portion so students get a chance to observe or partake in geology field work. Forty students and 5 professors from 3 Universities travelled to a remote area south of Deming, NM for 5 days of geotourism and field geology. Five undergraduates were awarded research projects under Dr. Peter Copeland using the data collected from the field trip. We worked closely with the College’s Director of Development, Jonas Chin, to raise over $2500 in support of the researchers.
Tailgates - We celebrated the new stadium with a prime tailgate spot in the student area for every home game last Fall.
Holiday Party - GeoSociety, SEG and AAPG held its annual holiday party on December 10th at Nouveau Antique Art bar last December with over 200 students and faculty in attendance. Nearly $3000 in funding for the event was raised solely by the societies.
Sheriff Lecture - AAPG and GeoSociety organized and paid for a full size bus to transport 25 undergraduate and graduate presenters to and from the Annual Sheriff lecture.
Professional Development Series - Each month we hosted a speaker on a new topic focused on preparing undergrads for industry positions, graduate school and beyond.
Short Courses - Geosociety organized three major weekend-long short courses designed to give students a basic understanding of Schlumberger's reservoir modeling software Petrel. All classes filled up with 36 students per class.
Guest Speakers - We hosted geoscience consultants, top industry executives, technical experts and more. Featured Speakers include Bill Dickson of DigsGeo (50+ attendees), Annell Bay of Apache Corp (40+ attendees), Clint Barnette of Apache Corp - Campus Ambassador (50+ attendees) and Dr. Paul Mann of CBTH at UH on applying to Graduate School (50+ attendess) to name a few.
