Joining an academic student club is a great way to make friends and learn more about your field of study. In the Geosciences we have two clubs to choose from, the Geosciences Club, and the Geography Honors Society Club, Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU). 

Geosciences Club

The Geosciences Club is a Student Chapter of AIPG (American Institute of Professional Geologists) and a Student Chapter of AEG (Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists). Both professional organizations send speakers each year to give talks to our students.

For more information about the Geosciences Club, please search for West Georgia Geosciences Club on facebook, or contact the Club Advisor, Randa Harris, at

Gamma Theta Upsilon
