About GPS 
The GPS aims to bring together all geographers by building a supportive, academic, and social community within the department. The executive team works together year long planning events, compiling resources and representing undergraduate students. 
Know your world 
Geography is a university-wide discipline that brings together facets from all faculties. Geography teaches students how to apply their interests spatially and to the world at large. Learn more about the Geography Department  and submit course reviews through GeoClass that others will be able to see!
