Membership is bought during O'Week or at AUGS events. Clicking 'JOIN' will not enlist you to the society.
For several years now the Adelaide University Geological Society (AUGS) has operated within the University of Adelaide as an association run by third year undergraduate students completing majors in Geology, Geophysics and/or Environmental Geoscience.
The aims of the Society are to encourage a social community between students and staff throughout all years, supply financial assistance to students for academic field trips requiring individual financial input and to facilitate through a variety of events, networking with professionals from the resources industry where graduating students will potentially look to gain future employment.
AUGS events include many functions throughout the year such as BBQs, quiz nights, pub crawls, sponsors nights and a formal dinner. Afterwards, and at all these events, student attendees have the opportunity to socialise and mingle with potential employers and academics in a relaxed environment drawing on their experience and knowledge. Overall the Adelaide University Geological Society adds an enjoyable social element to studies in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences.
