The benefits of joining GeogSoc

We are the Geography Student Society and we arrange events for all geography students throughout the academic year. Many of our events are social and provide a meeting point for students within the School of Geography.

The highlight of the GeogSoc calendar is the End of Year Ball, which is attended by many students and staff. GeogSoc is a Leeds University Union (LUU) society and operates within LUU guidelines along with Union support.

How to Sign Up:

 You will be able to sign up for GeogSoc during induction week (Week 0). To sign up, find us at the University Freshers Fair, where we will be taking details and providing more information about the society! You may choose between an annual or a lifetime membership, and when signing up for a lifetime membership you shall receive a free GeogSoc t-shirt.

GeogSoc Sports:

Our sports representatives, Alicia and Matt, lead our GeogSoc netball and football teams. Our teams play in society leagues at the University, with our players ranging from freshers to final years. This is a great way to make new friends and we encourage anyone to sign up, no matter the skill level!

Football:

The football team is both fun and competitive; consisting of matches against other societies and socials being held during the weeks. Weekly matches take place on Sundays and trials will be held during the week after freshers (Week 1).

Netball:

The netball team is a sociable and fun team to play for, with the team recently finishing 4th place in the league. Socials are organised throughout the year (Semester 1 & 2) and fortnightly training sessions are a great way for you to meet new people! Weekly matches take place on Fridays and trials will be held during the week after freshers (Week 1).

GeogSoc Holiday:

We hold an annual holiday open to the whole of the Geography Society. Our holidays are getting bigger and better, with our latest trip of 80 geographers making the journey to Prague for a long weekend.
