Hello and welcome to the Geography Society (GeogSoc) webpage!
We are the departmental society for students involved in the School of Geography at Leeds University. Our aim is to allow students to get to know each other that little bit better whilst having the best time possible at University in the process. We want to make your experience at Leeds Uni unforgettable!
Have a read below of what the society is all about and what it can offer you- if you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our president, Chloe, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by speaking to any of the committee via Facebook. Our page can be found by following the link below or in the ‘Contact this Group’ section at the top of the page.
Socials and trips
Socials will be running all-year round and will kick off with a BBQ during freshers’ week, giving you a chance to get to know the Committee and your fellow Geographers whilst enjoying some grub and plenty of drinks! We also offer a number of other socials throughout the year including pub-crawls, a secret social to another UK city, club nights and much more!
This year we'll be repeating the end of exams holiday where we take over 100 of you lovely Geographers to a European city for a subsidized blow-off to get rid of all that January exams stress!
At the end of every year we also throw the GeogSoc ball; a climax to the year and chance to get dressed up and celebrate with a 3 course meal, live band and DJ, free after party and plenty of free alcohol!
GeogSoc has many teams in the University’s intra-mural league. These include an 11 a-side football team, 5 a-side football team and a large netball team. The Intermural hockey and netball team won their leagues last year and are looking for new players, so don’t hesitate to message us if you want to get involved! Playing sport with GeogSoc is ideal for those who want to get involved with sport in Leeds without the commitment/demands of the official University teams.
Joining GeogSoc costs only £15 for one year. However if you sign up for lifetime membership you will receive a complementary t-shirt! Having membership to the society will mean that you are eligible to attend all of the socials, the holiday abroad and the end of year ball as well as academic and vocational talks/ lectures. Membership also gets you our exclusive GeogSoc card - entitling you to the discounts our committee members have been working hard to get for you all summer. These range from fast food takeaways, free/discounted entry to clubs.
So, if you want to get involved with one of the biggest and best student societies at Leeds Uni, sign up today and get ready for an awesome year with GeogSoc!
