GES/GIS Student Club: Every Day Geographical Experiences (EDGE)

EDGE aims to create an educational environment that provides opportunities for networking, field trips, community building, and leadership. The club provides networking opportunities within the disciplines of geography, environmental science, GIS, and other related careers in a variety of fields. Additionally, the club encourages continual networking among current students and alumni within the disciplines. Field trips provide exposure to a variety of geographic techniques and methods as well as team building and practical skills via hands-on activities. Community building and leadership includes enhancing awareness of the Geography/Environmental Science/GIS community at CU Denver and across the State. EDGE also works in conjunction with other like-minded clubs on the Auraria Campus, to further promote student activities and leadership opportunities.

All majors and anyone with an interest in geography, environmental science or GIS are welcome to participate in EDGE Club!

Meeting Times:

Students gather at Illegal Pete’s (14th and Wazee) Thursdays from 4-7pm. A few times throughout the semester, official meetings/events on campus are held instead of the unofficial gatherings. These are advertised on both EDGE’s Facebook page as well as the CU Denver Student Facebook group. Fliers around the department in North Classroom also list days and times of EDGE-sponsored/hosted events.
