Outcrop of Honor


Commemorate your link to the University of Florida Department of Geological Sciences

Remember your days studying geological sciences at UF? Remember all the fun, the thrill of learning about geology, the research projects that didn’t always go as planned, the friends you made, and the professors who inspired you? Here’s a tangible way for alumni and friends of the department to treasure those memories—the Outcrop of Honor recognition wall.

By putting your personal message on a brass nameplate affixed to a beautiful 12”x12” natural polished rock slab, your connection to the department will be recognized permanently inside Williamson Hall. This is a way to show how much the department means to you, while at the same time helping current and future students. In addition to having your personalized rock on permanent display, each donor will receive a certificate of appreciation.

Your donations toward the Outcrop of Honor are used to address a vital need for our students. Because of your support, we were able to replace one of the department vans in Fall 2013. However, we have three more vans, which are used to transport students to the Western United States during the annual six-week field camp and other field trips throughout the school year, and they will need to be replaced in the next few years.

We ask for a minimum donation of $1,000 to reserve a personalized plaque. The rock slabs are primarily various types of plutonic rock (commonly described as granites), while others are metamorphic. Be part of the newest use of the oldest rocks. Order your piece of the Outcrop of Honor recognition wall today and help support safer travel for UF Geological Sciences students.
