Recent geology graduate Dustin Northrup didn’t start out as a geology major. “I kind of fell into it by chance,” he said, “just by taking the right class at the right time.” Originally a history major, he became interested in geology after taking an elective course at BYU-Idaho called “Natural Disasters.” He soon declared geology as a minor.
All geology students, faculty, retirees and their families are invited
