Scrubbing up for the Geology Ball

Geologists are used to seeing each other on field trips, which commonly means without make up, scraggly hair (especially in my case!), unflattering outfits and slightly grubby hands and faces from clawing around in the mud looking at rocks. So once a year the geology society puts on a formal ball for us to attend giving us the opportunity to have a shower (okay I lie, we are not that bad!), don a swanky dress or suit, do something fancy with our hair and take lots of pictures for evidence.

And I must say, my year do scrub up well:

Nearly the entirety of 4th year!

About Eleri

Eleri has now graduated from the University of Leicester. Hello! My name is Eleri Simpson and I'm a 4th (and final!) year geology student at the University of Leicester. The parts of my course that I love the most are: mapping, igneous and metamorphic processes, geochemistry and volcanology. Outside of learning I'm part of the First Aid society and the University concert band, where I play the clarinet. I enjoy evenings at the pub, cooking, walking in the countryside and a good cup of tea.
