GEO Club

The PSU GEO Club provides students with chances to expand their Geographical Environmental Opportunities (GEO).  The club is open to all students but traditionally attracts students from majors in Geography, Environmental Planning, Tourism, and Environmental Science and Policy.  The club organizes several campus-wide activities each year, including a Geography Awareness Week event, a Geo Trivia Bowl, and sponsoring a tree for the annual Festival of Trees community fundraiser. Club members work collaboratively to invite alumni back as visiting speakers to discuss career advice and provide an understanding of opportunities in geospatial careers. The GEO Club also teams with the Plymouth Conservation Commission on a semi-annual trail work day, maintaining, mapping, and expanding the network of trails to sites such as Rainbow Falls and Plymouth Mountain. Club members work collaboratively in fundraising efforts to support attendance to the regional NESTVAL (New England St. Lawrence Valley) conference each fall and the AAG (Association of American Geographers) national conference each Spring.
