The Sedgwick Club is the official student Earth Sciences society at the University of Cambridge. Having been founded in 1880 in memory of Adam Sedgwick, it is the oldest student-run geological society in the world. It aims to promote the subject of geology among its members through regular talks and social events. This site contains information about activities organised by the Club.
