Scholars Travel to Arizona for Spring Break Course

For more than 20 years, Scholars students have spent their spring break studying the desert in Arizona. This year, 21 students enrolled in the 3-credit field geology course camped under the stars and traveled the state to learn about the role of the desert in a variety of disciplines, including astronomy, geology, human cultures, and ecology.

The group camped four nights and spent the other five nights in motels, observing several natural settings along the way. Students were graded on field work, a pre-trip quiz, and a final paper.
