International Geography Honor Society
 

In 1989, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Geography Department initiated a local chapter of Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU), the international geography honor society. Membership is open to qualified students and recognizes superior scholastic achievement in geography coursework. New memberships are awarded at the department's annual spring banquet.

GTU Membership Criteria

In keeping with the Society's specialized scholarship classification, initiates must:

  • Have a GPA of at least 3.3 (on a 4.0 scale) in geography courses
  • Rank in the top 35% of their class
  • Have completed a minimum of 3 geography courses
  • Have completed at least 3 semesters or 5 quarters of full-time college course work
