The Palliser Club

The Palliser Club is the Undergraduate Society for Geography majors. Undergraduates may join the Palliser Club, named for Captain John Palliser, an Alberta surveyor and one of the many famous geographers in Southern Alberta. The Palliser Club offers many services to undergraduates, from presentations to exam banks. Many social activities take place throughout the year, including hikes, ski trips and parties. Activities are the responsibility of the students themselves. The Palliser Club is run by an elected student executive.

Urban CSA

Urban Calgary Students’ Association is a student led organization originating from the University of Calgary. The objectives of UrbanCSA are to engage students on urban issues (especially those faced by Calgarians), and to bridge the gap between the student, the citizen, and the professional. UrbanCSA runs monthly speaker sessions, tours, academic workshops and more casual events. The association provides members with the opportunity to meet similarly interested students and citizens, and supplement their degree with experience outside of regular academic activities. The Urban CSA is run by an elected student executive.

GeoGSA (Geography Graduate Student Association) is a Departmental Student Association for graduate students in the Department of Geography. It is affiliated to the University of Calgary GSA.

GeoGSA is the representative for all Geography graduate students at the department level (attending Faculty meetings and regularly meet with Department faculty and staff on students’ behalf), and at the university level (attending monthly Graduate Representative Council meetings with the GSA, and communicating to the GSA and other university representatives on your behalf).

GeoGSA plans events to foster a sense of community and collaboration in the Department, as well as to enrich the student experience. GeoGSA also shares information on events, workshops and other things happening around campus or the greater community that might interest students.
