Pasadena City College, Home of the PCC Lancers



Established in 1937, the Dana Club is the oldest club on the Pasadena City College campus. This student organization sponsors guest lectures, arranges informal field trips, and engages in several fund-raising activities to support Geology scholarships and special projects. The club accepts donations of rock and mineral specimens to prepare as study material or sell at the PCC flea market. In conjunction with the biology club, the Dana Club established and maintains a rock and cactus garden on the college campus.

Traditionally the Dana Club has sponsored many field trips to areas of geological interest in the western U.S. Recent trips have included the Nopah Range of eastern California, Santa Cruz Island, the Long Valley Caldera, and Catalina (right).

The Dana Club also has a long-standing tradition of assisting the Mineralogical Society of Southern California in hosting an annual gem and mineral show. Now known as the California Show, it is held each year at the Pomona Fairplex in November.
