AEG Student Night Meeting – Scholarships & Poster Sessions!

Sacramento AEG Student Night Meeting

The AEG Sacramento Chapter is hosting its annual Student Night meeting on Tuesday, April 23rd. The meeting is a great opportunity for geology students to meet/interact with professional geologists in the environmental & engineering geology fields. Student dinners are only $10!

Students (both undergraduate and graduate) are encouraged to display posters highlighting your thesis research and/or classroom research for discussion/input in an informal setting. For students who are graduating soon, it is a great way to network with prospective employers. If you are planning on displaying a poster, please notify Matt Buche at The first 8 students who sign up and display posters will be awarded $50. Attendees of the meeting will vote on the best poster, and the winner will receive an additional $100!
