Geology Walking Tour of Campus
The buildings of Vassar College have been constructed with rocks from quarries throughout the United States. Each building displays unique features tied to the geologic environments in which they were formed. Professor Jill Schneiderman, Chair of the Earth Science and Geography Department, will lead a walking tour of the campus that reveals some of the unsung aspects of this beautiful campus. This program is in conjunction with the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center's exhibition Past Time: Geology in European and American Art, which participants can view before or after the walk.
