Support the Department of Environmental, Geographical and Geological Sciences

Your support of the academic community in Environmental, Geographical and Geological Sciences (EGGS) at BU is critical for its continued success. Gifts from our alumni and friends allow our faculty to mentor students in their research projects throughout the year and put our students in the best position to succeed by helping provide availability of the latest technology, research and teaching methods.

Your support makes a difference


Thanks to support from donors,  I was able to gain valuable outside-the-classroom experience that helped me to develop my leadership skills and put what I've learned into practice.

I served as President of the Maps, Plans, Environment and Rocks Society which allowed me to participate in many volunteer activities while developing my leadership skills.

I also received valuable work experience during my internship at the Union County Conservation District last summer. There I had the opportunity to learn more about the district and how it operates as a whole. My main project was to market a riparian buffer program to farmers near my own hometown in Union County.
