Who is GESA?
GESA is the Geography and Environmental Studies/Sciences Student Association.
What is GESA's purpose?
Our purpose is to get students involved in activities outside the classroom. We work to create awareness about events happening in the school and around the city related to our field of study. Students are also made aware of learning and employment opportunities related to their degree. We want students to have the chance to meet each other on a social level so that connections and friendships can be built throughout their studies at UWinnipeg and beyond. Our quaint student lounge is a great place to do homework, get help with assignments, and chat about whats happening in the department(s).
Who can join?
Anybody can join: we encourage all students from Geography and Environmental Studies, anyone who is taking geography or related sciences, to come out to the meetings and get involved with what we do.
When does GESA meet?
GESA meets every Friday at 12:30-1:20 pm but it usually ends earlier. We meet in 5L24. For more information about GESA, contact:
