    Saint Francis University AAPG Student Chapter

    The Saint Francis University AAPG Student Chapter was officially established in October 2016. The Student Chapters Program plays a critical role by providing an avenue where undergraduate geology students can engage in meaningful networking opportunities, and connect with professionals in geological careers, both inside and outside of academia. The Student Chapter Program is a wonderful way for student members and their advisors to build camaraderie around a shared passion, and to multiply knowledge and field experiences among a group in a casual, fun setting. Our undergraduate students run this chapter with advisor Dr. Guochang Wang. The officers are:
    President: Mr. Desmend Phillips
    Vice-President: Mr. Jan Vit Suntar
    Secretary: Mr. John Sheesley
    Treasurer: Mr. Jonathan Bruno
