Snapshots from Summer in the Rockies
August 29, 2013
Incoming first-year students started class early on the annual Summer in the Rockies trip, which includes a 3-credit lab science course, GEOL105: Introductory Physical Geology in the Rocky Mountains. Students study geology in the Black Hills of South Dakota and the spectacular Rocky Mountains of Wyoming, where a wide variety of rocks and processes are evident. They also get a chance to hike the mountains and camp with friends.
The group departed Aug. 4 and finished up Aug. 19, just in time for orientation. Dr. Jeffrey Strasser and Dr. Michael Wolf direct the program.
