California State University, Dominguez Hills in SupervolcanoEdit

Kelly Birnbaum was surprised but pleased to receive an offer of a teaching position at Cal State Dominguez after gaining her PhD.[1] She suspected that her chairperson Prof. Geoff Rheinburg had arranged it as an impromptu wedding gift when she married Colin Ferguson but didn't pry.[2] It was close enough to San Atanasio to commute from Colin's house and a job was a job in the current economy.

While the State Us were considered second tier, Kelly found the students to be of two types, some as bright as any at UC campuses but couldn't afford to attend, while others wouldn't be qualified to attend UCs and were just tying to get by at State U. She did try her best to teach them geology regardless.[3]
