Trevor Nace opines that geology students are the happiest with their degrees according to the National Student Survey, which polls university students across UK colleges and universities for satisfaction in their school and their major. An impressive 95% of geologists out of 220,000 polled said they were satisfied with their major, the highest of any other sampled. On the flip side, photography majors admitted only 67% were happy with their major.

Below I will outline the top 10 reasons I believe geology students rank as the happiest students at college. From intellectual curiosity,... More →
