The GeoSpot is located in the Chemistry and Geology Building (CG), Room 003 at San Antonio College. The Chemistry-Geology Building was built in 1961 and received a full renovation that was completed in 2009. Along with the renovation came the task of rebuilding the Geology Museum (GeoSpot) to have displays based on the courses offered. The faculty, staff, and volunteers of the Natural Sciences Department have built these displays for students to study and visitors to enjoy. The GeoSpot is a work in progress and is home to the newly re-founded Geological Society of San Antonio College. There are many specimens on display and collaborative plans for more interactive displays. Currently available to students are hand sample sets of rocks, minerals, and fossils, to study as well as a microscope for closer look. With the GeoSpot located in the basement of the CG, the atmosphere is perfectly suited for studying. The GeoSpot also offers Earth Sciences tutoring 19 hours per week for the aspiring geologist needing some encouragement. Call 210-486-0045 for more information because the hours of operation vary per semester depending on staff availability.
