Upcoming Events

Student Night: February 21st

In a departure from the normal routine, the February AEG meeting will be held on the 3rd Thursday of the month due to scheduling conflicts. We are anticipating participation from the University of Utah and Utah Valley University. In addition, we have contacted both Brigham Young and Weber State for potential Student speakers. A list of speakers and topics will be included in the February newsletter. We strongly encourage our members to support our student speakers and next generation of geoscience professionals.


Student Chapter News

The University of Utah AEG Student Chapter is an active participant in the Utah Section and have several lectures and a field trip, planned for this year (see below). Students from other universities are welcome to attend. The Student Chapter is also looking for additional lecturers and field trip leaders.

Additionally, the University of Utah AEG Students will provide presentations and participate in “Student Night,” next month.
