Geography Club is open to undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff. The purpose of Geography Club is to encourage informal social activities related in some way to the field of Geography. Activities vary depending on membership and may include field trips, movie showings, information exchange about upcoming events on campus and networking with the Department of Geography and Atmospheric Science Alums.
The Geography Graduate Student Organization promotes service and community among all members of the Department of Geography and Atmospheric Science. Membership is open and encouraged among all current Geography and Atmospheric Science Department graduate students to foster communication both among the graduate students as well as between graduate students and faculty. Each year, the organization presents the Globe-O-Mania competition held during Geography Awareness Week as well as sponsors other events such as a film series and orienteering with Orienteer Kansas. Geography GSO also organizes the departmental brownbag series, the annual Association of American Geographer (AAG) graduate student practice session lunch, lunch room coffee sales, and conference trips. To become involved in planning or attending these events, please join us at any GSO meeting. Information can be found on the bulletin board outside the lunch room or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a student chapter of the American Meteorological Society, which is open to anyone interested in meteorology. The chapter sponsors social and career-related activities. Meetings are announced in atmospheric sciences classes and through email. They can also be found on Facebook here.
