The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences Undergraduate Student Council exists to provide a link between the students, faculty, and alumni of the College. We do this through social events which promote interaction in an atmosphere not regularly experienced on campus.
Additionally, we attempt to offer a variety of outreach programs for new and prospective students. Many of you may have been attracted to the College while attending EMEX, or maybe you had an amazing experience at TOTEMS. Both of these events, and several others, were planned and carried out by this Student Council. Maintaining these events allows us to make the college experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.
The heart of Student Council is to provide services for the rest of the student body. If helping out your fellow students sounds like something you would like to do, feel free to browse the website and contact any of our members.
EMEX is quickly approaching. If you are interesting in being a host fill out the form by clicking here. We are in need of overnight hosts at this moment in time. If you have any questions, please email Nick Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A Message from the Webmaster:
If you are looking for a great way to get involved in The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences then feel free to come to our meetings and get involved in EMS Student Council! This past year, EMS Student Council was far and away the most active Student Council at Penn State! We've participated in many community service and other activities, raised over $80,000 for THON (the largest amount for general organizations) in addition to raising several thousand dollars to support Relay for Life! If you want a great way to get involved and meet others in the College of EMS, Student Council is a great way to do so! Help us continue the tradition!
As always, if you have any feedback about our organization and/or website, feel free to Contact Us!
