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!

American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG)

The American Institute of Professional Geologists is the largest association dedicated to promoting geology as a profession. 

Students can join for free and can receive free newsletters, attend local meetings, network with professional geologists, and meet other aspiring geologists. Visit the AIPG website to learn more.
