The Department of the Geology and Environmental Geosciences alumni/ae biographies project seeks to build stronger connections between our alumni/ae and our program and highlight the diverse and impressive accomplishments of our graduates. These biographies features personal accounts from our department’s alumni/ae in which they explain how their experiences at Lafayette shaped their lives and their career paths and share wisdom from their life experiences. These short biographical sketches provide examples of the broad spectrum of different career paths one can pursue with a Geology degree from Lafayette College.

The biographies can be scrolled through individually, as well as searched by key words.  Additionally, many of these alumni are willing to speak with current students to answer questions about their experiences and their careers.
