a. If not, you probably aren’t concentrating in Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University. Each summer, undergraduates concentrating in EPS have the opportunity to participate in an expense-paid field trip to a destination full of opportunities to learn geoscience and bond with classmates. In August 2016, 19 EPS undergraduates flew from Cambridge to the Big Island of Hawaii with the intention of getting up close and personal with volcanoes, climatic gradients, coastal features, and getting excited for the fall term.
