Geology Students
Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

It was the trip of a lifetime for the 15 geology students who participated in a five-day expedition at the invitation of Jordan`s Queen Rania to study the geological features of the Sinai and Petra.

The students, all enrolled in Professor Farkhonda Hassan’s geology course, say they considered the trip a remarkable opportunity because it is offered to the class every five years.

Cheryl Walton, an exchange student who went on the trip, said that it was “an honor because Queen Rania is royalty and so well known.”
