HOT DOG! PoCo Geo advanced to the "Igneous Eight". Thank you for all your help. That means that voting is again essential.

Every vote counts, so get that aunt, andesite, abyssal mud, or axial planar cleavage to cast that vote toward Claremont. Voting is OPEN!

We look forward to welcoming our alumni back campus and the geology department this weekend!

Even if you can't make it back to campus for alumni weekend, we need your help:

We're asking for alumni support for the Department's Tee Shirt logo which is running in the Geological Society of America's first ever "Tee Off" an International, bracket-style competition that pits geology department logos head-to-head. Design is shown below, inspired by our alluvial fan existence, and it's what we'll put on this year's Tee Shirts which we are ordering today.

Who Can Vote? ANYONE with Instagram or a Web browser! So we appreciate your vote and your help recruiting the votes of family, friends, faults, or feldspars. From Sweden to New Zealand, every vote counts

When: The first round of voting is in progress; Pomona will face either Illinois State University or Slippery Rock University, tomorrow, April 24.

👉🏽VOTE HERE! https://commoninja.site/835a56a7-dddd-4f27-9c42-aad8b51725ee 👈🏽VOTE HERE!
