Just curious to know if any of us actually took any kind of geology class in another life? I had a college level geology class that involved a little local field work. University of Minnesota, circa 1973-74. One of my electives.

Anyone?

I'll bet I sold the textbook to help fund my next semester of classes, doggone it!

I never have, but then again I majored in Business the in Respiratory Therapy. they didn't offer anything like that where i went to school.

I have been looking for some Adult Ed classes but have not come across any yet. I don't really want to take college credits for it. I have enough of those LOL I even looked into the Milwaukee Public Museum to see if they had anything

Graduated in 01 with a BS in Geology from UW-Madison. I probably ought to get an EC out there, as they are popping up in throngs.

That combination must really be in demand lately.

I threw a really interesting rock at a kid in grade school once. Little did I know that someday this would come back to haunt me with all of the caches hidden in ROCKS!

Nope...lots of Psychology, Biology and some Anthropology but no Geology.
I just like to learn new things and rocks are cool.

When I went to College (stone age) all of our classes were about geology. We just didn't call it that. Any kid studying "geology" was a total geek (we called them nerds then).

No geology classes here. Wish I would have because I now work at the WEIS Earth Science Museum at UW Fox Valley. It is the official state mineralogical museum and focuses on Wisconisn geology. And compared to my coworkers - I need more than the basics. Smile

I remember in a grade school science unit on geology, we found some rocks with fossils in them. Does that count for anything?

My first undergrad was broad field science education which got me into the teaching world. Since my course work involved a little of everything, geology was on the list.

I don't teach geology (prefer the chem) and never want to but the information does come in handy and I even still have the textbook I had to buy.

I read Roadside Geology of Wisconsin. That's where I get my information.

The rocks I was educated in are gallstones and kidney stones. I don't remember exactly but I don't think I learned about them in a geology class - lol.

No geology here. My daughter graduated from Madison in 06 with an undergraduate degree in geology. She showed me the fossils of trilobite butts along the river in Eau Claire that I made into an EC. She says there is an exposed fault line in a road cut in Chippewa, but cant recall where, so not much help there.
