Geology Club Speaker Series

The Geology Club at San José State University is a student-organized group that typically meets on Mondays at 12:00pm in Duncan Hall 306. Geology Club membership is free, but optional lunch fees for this semester are $30 for students and $35 for faculty. 

The Speaker Series is the Geology Club's weekly event, which gives students and faculty the opportunity to hear geology-related talks from guest professionals and educators on a wide variety of geologic subjects.
