Geoscience Student Clubs and Organizations

Geology Club

The Geoscience Club is a fun student-run club that participates in phenomenal field trips, awesome educational outreach efforts, and of course, our own exciting events!  The club is open to all students who are interested in the earth sciences and want to make a difference in the community while creating long-lasting friendships. New majors fit in very easily and find the department a welcoming and supportive place to grow and learn.


Our activities will vary from one semester to another, depending on the interest of the students and needs of the community.  Recent club activities include:

Sigma Gamma Epsilon (SGE)

Sigma Gamma Epsilon (SGE) is the national honor/pre-professional society for students in the geosciences. 

The society was founded in 1915 at the University of Kansas and currently has approximately 70 active chapters at colleges and universities across the country. 
The Eta Gamma Chapter was established at Weber State in 1998 and has been an official student organization registered with the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership since that time. 
Membership is open to those students who have distinguished themselves academically in their geoscience course work. New members are accepted at the beginning of each semester.
SGE’s traditional service project is to organize and run the Rock & Mineral event for middle and high school students as part of the Science Olympiad held at WSU each spring. Other recent chapter activities include:
  • collecting and distributing rock samples to local elementary schools
  • being lead coordinators for WSU ShakeUp events
  • running summer "Science Hiking" programs in conjuction with Weber Pathways
  • mentoring International Baccalaureate (IB) students in local high schools who are interested in the geosciences
  • running monthly "Science Saturday" events for school age children
  • organizing extracurricular fieldtrips and excursions in cooperation with the Geosciences Club.

National Science Teachers Association (NSTA Student Chapter)

The WSU Student Chapter of NSTA was established by and for science-teaching majors in the College of Science, but we recognize that you don’t have to be a high school physics teacher or university professor to be involved in teaching science to the rising generation. 

We want to provide resources and opportunities for anyone who wants to be involved in science outreach and education. 

We want to get students involved in teaching and outreach because we believe that there is no better way to learn!  

We’re working on programs like Science in the Schools during the school year and Science in the Parks during the summer to get future teachers out in the field and working with some hands-on scientific demonstrations. 

Not only does this help you with volunteer hours and getting you actively involved in the community, but it gives you valuable resources that you can use in your classroom. 

We’re planning on taking some fun field trips and hikes -- and we’re even working on social events so you can mingle with your peers throughout the semester.
