The Dickinson College Department of Earth Sciences runs a variety of trips, many of which are funded by our generous alumni. These field opportunities allow our students to study a geographically more diverse suite of earth processes.
Since 1993, The David and Cary Cassa Fund, created by Mary Rose Cassa '76 in honor of her parents, has helped students and faculty take earth sciences-focused trips that are further afield.
