Getting out of doors and exploring unforgettable natural destinations is an exciting part of what our students do.  WSU geology courses place an emphasis on field training to develop marketable skills that help our graduates succeed as professionals.  Field trips are also an important part of how we develop lasting relationships among our students and faculty.  Besides that, they're a lot of fun!
