University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown
The Geography Club at Pitt-Johnstown was started by Dr. William Kory in 1971 and has functioned continuously since that time. The members elect officers and the club holds regular meetings during the school year. Some of the events include sponsoring the "Geography Awareness Week" every November, taking part in Homecoming events, visiting geography departments in near-by colleges, hosting the "Geographer's Reunion" gathering, and sponsoring the GTU induction of selected members to this prestigeous international honorary geographical society. In April, a ceremony is held to honor selected members and to present the "K-AWARD" to the outstanding geography major of the year.
