Studies consistently show that college students are more likely to successfully graduate if they are involved in activities outside the classroom.  Kutztown University offers students a multitude of opportunities to get involved, and the Department of Geography hosts several such opportunites.

The Geographical Society is open to all KU students offering myriad opportunities for student involvement including:

  • Attendance at professional meetings

  • Mentoring and informal tutoring
  • Nature hikes and geocaching
  • Participation in Earth Day
  • Movie Nights for screening of geographically and environmentally relevant movies

Gamma Theta Upsilon (International Geographical Honor Society)

Department of Geography Climate Science Reading Group

Students interested in participating in a faculty-lead reading group focusing on published works on climate science and climate change research are encouraged to contact Dr. Michael Davis.  This is a great opportunity to informally study arguably the most important topic of our time, climate change, and to get intellectually and socially involved with fellow students and Geography faculty.
