Student Collegiate Soil Judgers, Rangeland Resource Science, Environmental Science & Management

HSU Collegiate Soil Judgers Place #1 in 11 western states (overall 19th out of 26).

HSU’s first National Collegiate Soil Contest team traveled to San Luis Obispo last week for four days of practice pits, followed by two days of individual and team competition among 26 universities in attendance. HSU team members included Nic Anderson (RRS), Daniel Guzman (ESM), Tiffany Perez (RRS), Miles Ritch (RRS), Monica Piña (RRS), and Alex Urban (ESM) and was co-coached by Joe Seney and Susan Edinger Marshall. Judging consisted of morphology, soil profile characteristics, site characteristics, soil classification, and land use interpretations. While host team Cal Poly San Luis Obispo did not compete, HSU outperformed land grant universities such as Utah State, Colorado State, and University of Wyoming. Humboldt State’s Wildland Soils option (under the Rangeland Resource Science major) qualifies graduates as federally qualified Soil Scientists.
