Clubs & Organizations, Environmental Science
Students in the environmental science program at Widener have opportunities to join various clubs and organizations on campus. Membership yields multiple benefits such as developing leadership skills, applying the principles and techniques learned in the classroom, and making a difference in the local community.
Widener takes pride in going green. The Environmental Club is open to all students at the university. The club holds multiple events throughout the year to bring awareness to the importance of protecting the environment; examples include a “Save the Seas Night” and a project to deter littering by re-labeling the storm drains around campus.
The club occasionally takes excursions to the Chesapeake Bay, the Baltimore and Camden Aquariums, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., shore locations along the New Jersey coast, the Pocono Mountains, and other unique geological and fossil sites.
Outdoor Adventure Club
The Outdoor Adventure Club is for anyone who loves nature and the outdoors. Numerous events from hiking and biking to rock climbing and kayaking (and all things in between) provide students with opportunities to experience the outdoors firsthand.
Engineering Geology Club
The engineering geology club is for students who are fascinated by the geologic environment and the impact of humans on the natural world. Employing a historic geologic perspective, the club studies such topics as minerals, gems, rocks, and earth processes. The club provides opportunities in the field to visit geologic sites such as caverns or fossil digs.
