Association of Geography Undergraduate Students

Who is AGUS?

You are! Association of Geography Undergraduate Students (AGUS) was founded in 1995 to provide both an informal academic and social environment to geography students. Since then, AGUS has sponsored many events, including a ski trip to Manning Park, paintball, hikes to Lightening Lakes and Teapot Hill, white water rafting, a skating party, student-faculty Christmas socials, student-faculty bowling nights, and Halloween corn maze visits. Other activities have included attending guest lectures at Lower Mainland universities, as well as pub and movie nights.

Joining AGUS provides a great opportunity for students to get involved in departmental life, and meet other students who share similar interests in a casual setting. More information about AGUS contact

"My most valuable experience was certainly the AIG to BC's Interior that I had the pleasure of completing with my peers under the guidance of Gary Fehr and Olav Lian. This experience was in-depth, interesting and relevant to my previous studies in a wide range of subject areas, including postglacial and paraglacial processes, First Nations affairs in BC and BC's evolving economy. I sincerely enjoyed this learning experience and it was the perfect way to cap off my undergraduate studies at UFV."
