In the summer of 2017, the School of Earth Sciences celebrated 70 years of continuous geology field camp studies in Ephraim, Utah. To commemorate this amazing milestone we held a four day alumni reunion with an attendance of 85 people (alumni and faculty), a challenging feat for our small hosting town of Ephraim! The days were filled with field trips to our most iconic field mapping areas; the evenings were spent in outdoor picnics and other social events where many had a story to tell…Oh what stories!!
For the many who were not able to join us for our reunion event in Utah in June 2017, the commemorative booklet we created for the occasion will provide the opportunity to reminisce about their own Utah experiences. This booklet endeavors to document student and faculty participation in the Ohio State geology field course through the years. Inevitably, records are incomplete and we welcome contributions from field camp alumni to improve our photo archives and other historical records.
