The GSA is welcoming the new year and we're kicking off this new semester with new (and old) GSA officers and an enthusiastic, energetic and activity-filled year. We started off this semester with Week of Welcome (WOW) and had a lot of fun talking to students about geography. Plus we had amazing cookies.
As for upcoming events, our first one is the free LA Geographical Society lecture this Friday at 8 pm at LA City College. This month's lecture is on "Amenity Clusters defining the Spatial Logic of Los Angeles" by Samuel Krueger from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. If you want to carpool send us an email. For more information on LAGS lectures, check out their website lageography.org.
We will have meetings every other Thursday starting at 2:30 pm in PH1-230. The first meeting of the semester will be on February 12th. This is a great way to meet fellow geographers, learn about events and even contribute ideas for future events.
We plan to have more events later this month so keep checking us out here and on our other social media site for updates. We hope your semester is off to a good start and that the GSA can help make it even better. We hope to see you around. Spread the good word of geography!
