Who is AGUS?

You are! GUS was founded in 1995 to provide both an informal academic and social environment for geography students. Since then, GUS has sponsored many events, including a ski trip to Manning Park, paintball, hikes to Lightening Lakes and Teapot Hill, white water rafting, a skating party, student-faculty Christmas socials, student-faculty bowling nights, and Hallowe'en corn maze visits. Other activities have included attending guest lectures at Lower Mainland universities, and pub and movie nights.

Weeks of planning paid off on Sept. 23, 2016 when AGUS hosted their first Pub Night Fundraiser selling almost 100 tickets. AGUS raised $2500 which will go towards sending students to academic conferences in 2017 as well as future AGUS actitivies and events. Visit the AGUS facebook page for more photos of the fundraiser and to find out more about upcoming events.
