AAPG Student Chapter 2010
The AAPG Student Chapter at the University of Alabama is a student organization with the purpose of aiding in the personal, academic and professional development of students within the Department of Geological Sciences. Some of the key focal points for our chapter include organizing field trips, arranging for guest speakers, promoting industry recruiting at UA, and coordinating networking opportunities with geoscience professionals. Activities are designed to promote growth of leadership, teamwork and technical skills in an atmosphere of both social and professional camaraderie.
There are many events being organized for the upcoming semester. Take a look at our Events page to see all of the activities being planned for this semester. We are very excited about our new officers and we’re hoping to gain some new members at our first meeting of the fall 2011 semester on Tuesday, September 6th. We are also currently recruiting a new team for the Imperial Barrel Competition for the 2012 year.
Involvement in our chapter first requires a membership in the AAPG. For students, this membership can be provided at no cost through industry sponsorships. We hope to see an increase in membership and participation in the following year.
