History: The Sternberg Geosciences [formerly "Geology"] Club, organized in 1968, honors the Geosciences as well as the Sternberg family . The "GeoClub" is a student organization which seeks to promote interest in geology and geography and regularly holds field trips, scientific seminars, and social events each year. It is also the goal of the club to establish interactive communications between those alumni who are practicing geologists and geographers and the club members who are aspiring to become geoscientists. Club members assist surrounding schools by making personal visits in an effort to promote the geoscience program at FHSU. They also participate in the annual Oktoberfest event each fall to raise funds for club activities, as well as to enjoy the cultural flavor of the 'fest.
The GeoCaching Club, organized in 2006 and combined with the Sternberg Geosciences Club in 2008, is a club open to any FHSU member interested in the outdoor high-tech treasure-hunting game known as Geocaching.
In 2008 the Sternberg Geosciences Club and FHSU Geocaching Club realigned themselves to meeting at the same time and inviting all members of both clubs to participate in all events. The new now combined club now operates under the name Sternberg Geosciences and Geocaching Club.
