Kutztown University is home to the Gamma Psi Chapter of Gamma Theta Upsilon, the International Geographical Honor Society. GTU is open to any and all KU students that have an overall GPA of 3.3 or better, at least 36 credit hours, and a minimum of 9 credit hours in geography. Students must also have a 3.3 or better GPA in geography. Letters are sent out twice each year to all students that meet these requirements inviting them to a simple, casual initiation ceremony. Here inductees are exposed to the history of GTU and the meaning of the organization's symbols and colors.
