Nearly every year since 1975, the Department Geological and Environmental Sciences has put together an annual newsletter documenting the events of each academic year. Together, these newsletters form an invaluable record of our department history, accomplishments and development. Below, you will find links to newsletters from the last several years; however, if you would like to leaf through pages from the past, you are encouraged to visit our ScholarWorks archive where older issues can be found. We are in the process of uploading all of the newsletters, so check back frequently for more news from the vault!
