BYU-Hawaii Geol 105H: Big Island Trip

Its a little strange that a computer science has to take a Geology class to graduate. The reason behind was, initially, the plan is to take a Physic class which clashes with my major classes. I was given several options by my professors to either take Biology (which I am not interested in), online Physic class from BYU-Provo or Geology 105H.

I have no idea what Geology is and have never heard of it. My first thought was, does it has something to do with my genealogy. I got mixed up with the words but upon the first day of class, I realize that it was study about rocks and earth.

I am glad I took the class as it has definitely open my mind and has given me the ability to see the world in a different perspective. I am grateful for Dr Ben who is an extraordinary professor and is able to be part of the Big Island trip to witness volcanoes. The trip truly has shown me things that I have never seen in my entire life before.



We were privileged to be on a helicopter ride as well and be able to witness lava flowing into the ocean.



Also, we were able to see the glow of lava at night. It's a pretty rare sighting that our professor has even said he has never experience it in all his past trips.
