A Message from the Geography Graduate Association

Hello and welcome from your Geography Graduate Association!  As current graduate students within the department, we are active in creating a vibrant social and academic community for all of our members.  In addition to an annual graduate student retreat, we organize a variety of events throughout the year including, professional development workshops, faculty panels, and pub nights, among others.  Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to learn more about our activities and/or are interested in getting involved.  We are always interested in welcoming new members.
