Distinguished Lecturer

       AAPG offers a crew of visiting geologists and distinguished lecturers that can visit USC to speak on several topics.  Khandaker Zahid is the head of this project to bring a lecturer to USC for a special AAPG seminar ASAP.

Field Trip

      Don't make your spring break plans just yet!  A trip to Utah is in your future.

Undergraduate NEWS 

            Join the AAPG student chapter to learn about a quick and easy way to get cash for next semester!  The Austin Weeks Grant is a grant up to $500 for one undergraduate of the student chapter.  Join us at the next meeting to find out more.


Many ideas for fundraising have surfaced this year:

        Sell grain size cards -  These are small charts of actual grains depicting grain size for use in field work.  Anyone in the sediment class will use a grain size chart many times, it is our goal to make these charts and sell them to students.  This idea is in the works but anyone interested in this should come to our next meeting.

        Member Rebates - AAPG gives student chapters a rebate for each member of the student chapter that is on the membership role.  Who would have thought that you could raise money just by joining!
