Student Associations

Get involved with the UBC Geography community through events and activities hosted by the Geography Student Association.

Geography Student Association

The Geography Student Association is a student-run organization for UBC geography students, alumni, and non-geographers. We are one of the most active student associations on campus, with events for every facet of university life: academics, sustainability, and, of course, social.

Events range from lunches with the Department Head and professors to learn more about their work, to guest presentations with professionals working in sustainability. We also publish the undergraduate journal Trail Six, run the GeoGarden, coordinate our Bad Latitude sports team, and celebrate the end of the year with our Geogala.

Trail Six: Undergraduate Journal of Geography

Every year, the Geography Students’ Association publishes Trail Six, a well established undergraduate journal. Trail Six publishes exemplary scholarly work of undergraduate students within the field of geography in a peer-reviewed, academic setting. Students are encouraged to submit well-written, interesting and well-researched journals in early December/January. Please stay tuned for details regarding submission deadlines.
