Where the W&L Geology Department Works and Plays

The Geology Department travels to field sites within the United States and throughout the world. Undergraduates are encouraged to take at least one course that involves working in the field or conducting research in environments not local to Virginia. Spring Term Courses, Summer Lenfest Research Grants, and funds made available through the generosity of alumni who donate to the Kozak-McGuire-Spencer-Schwab Award and the R. Preston Hawkins IV Geology Award allow students affordable ways to experience the thrill of experiencing the world that geology offers.
