The 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 it 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 minded folks to talk and get to know one another.
Josh Riebe – President

Club meetings are held every other Tuesday at 5:30 pm in the Old Geography Library, 280 Science Hall. You are also welcome to attend meetings over Zoom.
Geography Club sells Wisconsin Geography t-shirts once per academic year. Be on the lookout for a department email to buy a shirt that will help support club activities.
