Geosciences at Virginia Tech

Alumni & Friends

Welcome back!

Greetings from Blacksburg! We are glad you came to visit. Big things are happening in Geosciences with an ever-growing student population and forefront research directions. Another of those is our production of an all-new web site for our past, present, and future students! Please bear with us in the coming months as we finish building out the content and databases of the full site.

Along the way, we have been finding wonderful pictures in our archives. Some of them are sprinkled through the alumni pages and we hope you will enjoy some of these memories. It was difficult to decide which ones to display first!

If you have suggestions for things you would like to see added or changed (or simply like!), please let us know.

So bookmark our new site at, and come to visit often!
