Keep on rockin' the Geosciences!

The Geological Sciences Department at Cal State Fullerton has a long history of alumni engagement through participation in events and donations that provide critical support for the next generation of geologists and Earth scientists. Our current effort will raise funds to directly support our students through scholarships and awards. Funding will be used to help enhance and endow several of our scholarships.  

Filed Camp 2016 - Yellowstone National Park

Our crowdfunding effort is taking place in conjunction with our annual Alumni Reunion on October 6th, 2023 at Dave & Busters in the City of Orange from 6-10 pm. We hope to see you at the event, but even if you can’t make it, you can still have an impact on our current and future students.

2019 Alumni Night

Through alumni support over the last few years, we’ve been able to create scholarship endowments and increase the distributed amounts of many of the named scholarships in our department. This year, we look to further enhance scholarship funding and support student participation in field camp.
