The Hocking College Experience

Students in GeoEnvironmental Science Program Study Ohio’s Buried Valley Aquifers

by Hocking College Contributing Writer

Groundwater supplies about 40% of the nation’s drinking water. It's especially important in rural areas, but even urban areas may depend on groundwater to meet a significant portion of daily needs. Groundwater, unlike surface water in streams and lakes, is a largely invisible resource because its presence is hidden beneath the Earth's surface. Groundwater is not evenly distributed and is available in greater quantities in some areas than in others.

GeoEnvironmental Students Study the Connection Between Streams, Groundwater & City Water Wells

by Hocking College Contributing Writer

One primary goal of the GeoEnvironmental Science Program is to train students in skills and concepts important to protection and assessment of groundwater resources, as well as monitoring and remediation of polluted ground water. An important part of the conceptual foundation which guides hands-on efforts to conserve and restore threatened groundwater supplies is the physical connection between groundwater and surface water, such as streams, lakes, and wetlands.

Job Prospects for GeoEnvironmental Science Graduates Look Rock Solid

by Tim Brunicardi

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, students in Hocking College's GeoEnvironmental Science Program can expect growth of new employment opportunities to be nearly twice the average of any other occupation. In fact, the job growth rate for this occupation can expect to climb to 12% over a 10-year period (2016-2026), which is nearly twice the average growth rate for all fields.

GeoEnvironmental Science Students Examine Field-Evidence of the Last Ohio Sea

by Hocking College Contributing Writer

Students from the GeoEnvironmental Science Program ascend a local highway road to cut in search of Ames limestone. This distinctive rock layer marks the last time seas flooded Ohio. This is a significant event in Ohio's geologic history and is one that's observed in the Historical Geology course at Hocking, which focuses on the geologic origin of the North American continent in particular.

How to Become an Environmental Engineering Technician

by Tim Brunicardi

What Do Environmental Engineering Technicians Do?

An environmental engineering technician's job duties include carrying out plans that environmental engineers develop. In addition, they test, operate, and modify (if necessary) equipment used to prevent and/or clean up any environmental pollution. They also collect samples for testing, as well as work to mitigate sources of environmental pollution.

Hocking College's GeoEnvironmental Science Program Offers Solid Job Prospects

by Tim Brunicardi

In this day and age, geoenvironmental scientists are essentially pollution detectives. Their job is to locate and track the spread of any contaminants that could potentially threaten the safety of drinking water supplies, as well as to discover the nature and source of the contamination. Some of their other duties include:

GeoEnvironmental Students Attend Ohio Geological Survey Open House

by Tim Brunicardi

On Saturday, September 8 students from Hocking College’s GeoEnvironmental Science program attended the Ohio Geological Survey Open House at Horace Collins Lab near Delaware, OH. Founded in 1837, the Ohio Geological Survey's mission is to "provide geologic information and services needed for responsible management of Ohio's natural resources."
