TERRA is a club that appreciates all that the earth has to offer, but also understands how the Earth functions and thrives. Associated with the Earth and Environmental Science Department, students gather together to promote and discuss environmental topics as well as plan activities including field trips, invited speakers and local events.
The Terra Society organizes activities that promote an appreciation and understanding of the Earth and of environmental sciences. We sponsor speakers and field trips that aim to broaden our knowledge of the natural word. The Society is open to all students and welcomes anyone interested in the areas of geology, environmental science, and paleontology.

In addition to their group site, please see TERRA’s Facebook page for more information. TERRA can also be found on Orgsync (requires myNEU login.)
