Connect with peers in the Department of Geography.
Student organizations are a great way to meet people with similar interests, create networks, and gain experience.
Geography Club provides a place for undergraduate and graduate students to work together on events and projects that are related to geography… And there is a lot in the world around us related to geography! Students work to promote geography and geographical thinking on campus and in the community through events such as humanitarian mapathons, visiting local schools, networking with alumni, and learning more about the research labs in the department.
Students interested in joining Geography Club can fill out the form below or send an email to indicate their interest and be connected to the club president for info. You do not have to be a geography student to join, and we welcome anyone who is just interested in what geography is and what geographers do.
