Welcome to the Geology Club


Geology Club

The purpose of the Northern Illinois University Geology Club is to enhance the undergraduate experience and to open doors to students interested in getting more involved in their major and in learning about the other resources the NIU geology department has to offer.

The direction of NIU Geology Club is to enhance the undergraduate student experience of students within the Geology and Environmental Department at NIU through geologic excursions, organizing geology-oriented get-togethers, and facilitates personal knowledge growth and volunteer opportunities.

Get involved, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
