We are excited to announce that the Geography Club is up, running and in full swing for the spring of 2018! If you think Geography Club sounds like a good time, please join us at our next meeting on Saturday, February 24, where we will be snowshoeing to Lost Lake. The club will meet at the Hessie Trailhead at 10 am (outside of Nederland, near Eldora Ski Area), or to carpool, meet at the parking lot at the end of Pearl Street where it meets Boulder Canyon Drive (40.014, -105.295) at 9:15 am. If you don’t have snowshoes, they can be borrowed from CU’s Outdoor Program at the Rec, the Hiking Club, or REI.
Our last meeting was on February 8 at Illegal Pete’s. We partook in free Pete’s (a burrito here, a quesadilla there) and brainstormed for future meetings. In the fall, we had two meetings: one meet-and-greet and one movie night. The New York Times called the events “a raging success” and “the can’t-miss event of the year,” respectively.
The Geography Club aims to bring geography students (and those interested in the department) together to discuss courses, academic pathways, and personal interests in geography related things. These conversations arise organically in social settings and outdoor events like hikes and overnight trips as a means to further unify the Geography department outside of Guggenheim.
If you want to be a part of these monthly extravaganzas, please follow our Facebook page CU Boulder Geography Club to stay involved, and keep an eye out for flyers posted in Guggenheim. You do not have to be a Geography major to join. If you want to get more involved with the meeting process, contact Sarah Kelly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
