Geography Club

Pile of T-ShirtsThe UW Geography Club brings together undergraduates in geography in an informal setting. Through Club activities and social networks, undergraduates see how geography plays a major role in the lives of everyone and how geography can lead to a rewarding career.

The Geography Club does a mix of social, academic, and volunteer activities – usually but not always involving geography – and is focused on undergraduate issues. Primarily, the Club is a place for geographically like-minded folks to talk and get to know one another.
