PETITION: It’s time to Hold CofC Accountable for Confederate Sympathizer, Glenn McConnell, as President!

Read, Sign, & Share the petition below and please share with as many members of the College of Charleston Community that you can! If you can commit to finding at least 10 other signers, I am sure that the College of Charleston will hear our voices and demands.

The petition is sponsored by CofC Action Now and Black Alumni Network

I have a few items that I would love to have someone look at and give me some kind of feedback.
Although most of our majors receive all of this information, this presentation is very clean and clear. If any of you are interested in the Professional Geology licensure path, feel free to get in touch! https://www.facebook.com/groups/297259306826/permalink/10157081825111827?sfns=mo
Hey fellow CofC Geology Alums! I'm ecstatic to announce that my #SciWriting Education Campaign has launched! Help empower students with #scicomn skills by donating, signing up to be a PAID reviewer, and please share far and wide to spread the word.
Good info... much of this applies in Charleston and the SC Lowcountry as it does Chesapeake.
Those of you with a similar interest in karst, hydrology, and strange geomorphology should check out the 15th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst which will be 2-6 April 2018 in Shepherstown, WV
Just posted by the Environmental & Engineering Geology Division for a new panel at #GSA2017:
We are currently looking for EEGD Members that will be available during the GSA 2017 Conference in Seattle to be on a panel. We are soliciting speakers who have direct relevant knowledge and experience to hurricane impacts and might be "itching to bring" a particular aspect of their work to everyone's attention at GSA Seattle.
Session Description: GSA will host a late-breaking session on the geoscientific and societal aspects of this year's record-breaking hurricane events in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. Panel discussions will focus on topics such as real-time and other situational awareness tools (e.g., pre- and post-storm LIDAR surveys), effects on infrastructure (lifeline and critical resources), and human/societal factors (warning and risk communication, evacuation, and direct/indirect impacts). We envision a set of small panels, with plenty of time for discussion. No abstracts would be involved.
The late breaking session will occur from 8:00 am to noon on Tuesday October 24th, 2017.
There will be three panels organized broadly around the following themes:
(1) Real-time Monitoring and Observation
(2) Impacts on Infrastructure and Resources
(3) Warning and Risk Communication
Each panelist will have 10-15 minutes for presentation, with collective moderated Q&A at the end of each panel.
If you have any questions or if you are interested please contact Jessica Witt at [email protected] or 803-295-8821 or Monica Gowan at [email protected] or 507-206-9948. If interested please reply back ASAP so that we can submit your name!
Geology degree 1986. Unfortunately the article states I gave geography degrees!

Geology Rocks! And so does the College of Charleston! You won't find a better department to be a part of (I may be a little biased). Feel free to ask any questions if you're interested in Geology and Environmental Geosciences.

Geology Professor Explains Cause of Sinkhole Near Campus 07/06/2021

Geology Professor Explains Cause of Sinkhole Near Campus

"Many wondered, How did that happen? and What is a sinkhole? Thankfully, the College of Charleston has an expert to explain. Professor of Geology and Environmental Geosciences Norman S. Levine studies natural phenomenons like sinkholes and earthquakes. As the director of the Santee Cooper GIS Laboratory, the Lowcountry Hazards Center and the South Carolina Earthquake Education and Preparedness Program, movement within the earth is kind of his thing."

Geology Professor Explains Cause of Sinkhole Near Campus On June 15, 2021, the earth opened up on Coming Street, leaving an 8-foot hole in the middle of a main thoroughfare of the College of Charleston campus. The sinkhole stretched 10 feet in diameter and quickly became the talk of the town. Many wondered, How did that happen? and What is a sinkhole? Tha...

Dr. Them has been out in the field recently, and took geology students Natalie Sorrem, Roxy Buck, and Corinne Luksch along for some geological experience. They are generating a low-resolution geochemical dataset across ice sheet expansion and contraction during the Mississippian in a shallow water, limestone-dominated section. They are taking measured sections, and have measured ~175 meters so far. Afterwards, they got to go look at Cambrian fossils nearby. The goal is to come back with other groups for a high-resolution integrated sed-geochem-paleo dataset.

Paleontology + technology 💻🦖

Dr. Scott Persons took the 3D scanner and solar generator out for some fieldwork to scan a dino trackway in Wyoming. The tracks cannot be collected and year they erode away a little more. That makes creating a digital record of their form extra important!

Learn more in Dr. Persons' GEOL 395-02: Field Studies Paleontology virtual course in Summer-2 (class starts July 13) or GEOL 240: Dinosaurs & Mass Extinctions in Fall 2021!

ICYMI: Prof Cindy Hall, Dr. Barbara Beckingham, Dr. Tim Callahan, and crew joined Team Walking Cougars for the Water Mission 15th Annual Charleston Walk for Water to bring awareness that every day millions of people have to walk miles and miles just for water. For some, the water source is unprotected and untreated and can make them sick. Each dollar raised by this event will make an impact through a safe water community development project! #walkforwaterCHS

Happy #CofCDay!

With your support, we can create an even brighter future for the College of Charleston. Here are four easy ways to celebrate the 251st anniversary of the College’s founding this Thursday, January 28, our second annual CofC Day.

1. Make a donation to the Geology Alumni award in honor of CofC Day here: https://tinyurl.com/y3zee3c4

If we have 1,500 alumni donors by the end of CofC Day, an anonymous member of the class of 1987 will generously donate $1.5 million to the College!

2. Let's flood social media with CofC! Download images from our social media page: http://bit.ly/CofCDaySocialMedia and use the hashtag #CofCDAY.

3. Watch the live webcast on our YouTube channel from 7-9 pm EST and cheer on our 2020 Alumni Awards recipients: https://bit.ly/CofCDay21Webcast

4. Wear maroon on Thursday. It looks good on everyone and can be a conversation starter about the College with family, friends, and colleagues.

Thank you in advance for your participation in our second annual CofC Day!
