We are by far the largest academic society here at Sussex with over 200 current members and each year we offer THE best social experience for everyone, this year will be no different! As always we will be offering our infamous international trip (previous trips have taken GeogSoc to Berlin, Amsterdam and Copenhagen!) and our classy Summer Ball (a night not to miss out on!). There will also be frequent alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials including quizzes, club nights and bowling as well as guest speakers and opportunities to get involved with local geographical issues. 

We pride ourselves in being all-inclusive - GeogSoc is for everyone, regardless of what subject you study and, unlike many other societies, our membership is free so there's no excuse for not joining!  You can sign up on the right-hand side of the page (or at the bottom if you are using a mobile device).

To keep up to date with all our plans for the year (there is going to be A LOT going on!) check out our Facebook page where all the events will be posted as well as any information you need. We are also on Twitter - and give us a follow on Instagram for photos from all our events (we always follow back!). We now also have a Snapchat account - follow sussex.geogsoc !

We can't wait to meet you!
