Udden Geology Club
Fridays, 3:45pm Swenson Hall of Geosciences, Room 108 -- since 1933!
Udden Geology Club meets weekly for informal presentations and discussions on a wide range of topics in an effort to help develop student interest in the broader geosciences.
Presentations are typically given by faculty, students or alumni and time is alloted afterwards for discussion.We often invite outside speakers to talk about their research, careers, or graduate school experiences. In addition to weekly meetings, Udden Club sponsors occasional local/regional fieldtrips and participates in campus events.
Founded in 1933 in honor of J.A. Udden, who taught geology at Augustana from 1888-1911, Udden Geology Club is one of the oldest organizations at Augustana College.
The club is open to anyone interested in the earth sciences. The main objective of the group is to provide a forum where geological topics can be presented and discussed informally.
The Udden Club meets every Friday at 3:45 p.m. in the Swenson Hall of Geoscience, room 108, and refreshments are served (free cookies). Visitors are always welcome.
