What is GEOFYRST? Geologic Experience Outdoors: the First Year Regional Summer Trip is a six-day, pre-semester field trip exploring the geology of New York and the Northeast before opening a textbook. It's a camping trip, so be ready to live in tents for six days. Previous trips have visited the Catskill Mountains, the Berkshire Hills, and Cape Cod.
All incoming freshman and transfer students are invited to apply to go on this unique field trip. In addition to getting to know other new students and developing field research skills in a fun environment, participants earn credit toward completion of the lab portion of the course GEOL 120 (Introduction to Geology).
