As a student, you benefited from the experience and success of those who graduated before you. As a graduate of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) you have the insight, perspective, and experience to become a critical component of the EMS network through the Penn State Alumni Association and our Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
