Geology field trips
Field trips are an essential part of the experience in the geology programs at Oswego. Being out in the field is where students learn the most applying concepts they have learned in the classroom, and have a bit of fun. Trips are often run with both upper- and lower-division classes. This gives lower-level students a chance to learn from faculty as well as students with more field experience and creates a true sense of camaraderie. Here are some pictures from some recent adventures...
