Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences

Student Organizations

There are several student-run clubs and professional organizations associated with the Wright State Department of Earth and Environmental Science, some of which are local and some of which are chapters of national groups:

Students for Earth and Environmental Sustainability (SEES)

This is an organization for students with an interest in Earth and Environmental Sciences. Not an EES major? Does not matter! We enjoy combining all walks of life into a fun, educational, and active organization.  Among numerous fun activities, we take yearly trips to places like the Ohio Caverns, put on events for Earth Science Week, and are a part of a Highway Cleanup project!

Students can join for free and can receive free newsletters, attend local meetings, network with professional geologists, and meet other aspiring geologists.
