Student Clubs

GEP Club

"Our mission is to connect students and staff within the Geography, Environment, and Planning major through social events, educational pursuits, environmental campaigns, and volunteer opportunities."

The club sponsors various events, including academic lectures and social gatherings, intended to foster community and good times among students with similar interests at SSU. The club regularly plans potlucks, hikes, camping trips and educational tours of local environmental organizations.These events provide students with opportunities to network and keep up with the latest changes in their field.

Meetings are generally held on Thursdays via zoom and/or in person from 3:00-4:00 pm (announcements sent out via the GEP department listserv) or Instagram. The meeting time is used to plan events and discuss issues of general interest to the group.

Anyone interested in Geography, Environment, and Planning and having fun is encouraged to come!

Hello! My name is Monica, I'm from Sunnyvale California, and this is my 4th year at Sonoma State. I am majoring in Environmental Science, Geography and Management with a focus in Environmental Systems and a minor in Biology. If I am not busy working on campus or doing homework, I love to go line dancing, get outside for a hike, read a good book or go on adventures with friends. If you see me on campus, don't hesitate to say hello!

Devon Sherber

I'm Devon, a Rohnert Park native and GEP major with a Geospatial Science focus and a minor in Computer Science. I'm convinced that climate change is the biggest crisis of our time, and I'm a firm believer in leaving every place you interact with better than how you found it, and that ethos is what led me towards environmentalism and native wildlife conservation. I love spending time in nature, listening to music, playing games, and reading about politics. If you see me on campus and need help with computer stuff, or just want to have a deep philosophical conversation, I'm always happy to lend a hand!
