Welcome to the Geology Department
We offer students the chance to experience the excitement of the geological and environmental sciences in the spectacular surroundings of the Green Mountains, Adirondacks and Lake Champlain.
Our department is interesting, dynamic, and fun—we invite you to navigate through this website to take a closer look.
