Women in Geology at W&L

Women in the Geology Department at Washington and Lee

We want you to know a little bit about how the female geoscience faculty and staff, and former female students, became interested in a geology degree, and what they went off to do with it. Some of us came to college knowing we wanted to be geologists, others didn't realize it until they took a geology course -- or two. Once we chose to study geology, we did not necessarily know what would come next, but we have enjoyed all the experiences we have had since graduating from W&L, including graduate school, travel, jobs, and careers -- whether we became academics, environmentalists, non-traditional environmentalists, geoscientists in the oil and gas industry, or did not become geoscientists at all. (And we tend to be really good cornhole players.)

We welcome you to meet with us and to take a geology course. You might like geology as much as we do!
