The Association aims at bringing together all students of the Department and other interested in the discipline. To sustain and foster interest of its members, the society usually organizes talks, debates, symposia and excursions. The activities ensure that students took beyond their set academic courses.
Excursions are usually organized to places of geographical interest in the country. However, where possible, trips are made to places outside the country, especially to neighbouring countries. The society publishes a magazine – The University Geographer – every session. Membership is compulsory for all students intending to major in Geography in the Faculties of Sciences, the Social Sciences and Education.
