JMU maintains an active astronomy club consisting of students in all majors with an active interest in astronomy. JMU Astronomy Club meets every other Thursday at 8 PM during the semester in the Miller Planetarium. The club frequently holds observation nights making use of JMU's Astronomy Park and occasionally at off-site locations. Each semester, the group organizes a field trip to sites of astronomical interest including nearby Greenbank Radio Observatory in West Virginia and McCormick Observatory in Charlottesville, VA. If you're interested in joining the club contact them through their email or on Facebook.
