Come back to campus and help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences! Over the past 50 years, the department has continuously evolved and remade itself. Throughout this process we have always stayed true to three principal goals: provide the best possible education for our students; conduct the highest quality research; and serve the global community by increasing our understanding of the natural environment and our role in it. Join us to help celebrate the history of the department, and to learn more about its future. These events are open to all alumni, students and friends of NIU. All guests must register to attend.
