Queen Mary Geography Society
Academically world leading, socially unequalled, the School of Geography presents to you the Queen Mary Geography Society (QMGS).
Lead by students for students, QMGS intertwines passions for learning, development and exploration. We welcome a vast array of students from a diverse spectrum of backgrounds which is something QMUL and the School of Geography values and prides itself on. We have found this cohesive connection contributes to academic and social development and everlasting global friendships.
QMGS works closely with the School of Geography to bring to you legendary virtual and (hopefully) in person social events and activities. There really is something for everyone!
QMGS Committee for 2021/22
Akshithaa Sellvarajah, BSc Geography
“Hi! I am the president of the Queen Mary Geography Society this year. My main interests lie in environmental policy and technology as well as sustainability and environmental economics. I hope to do a masters in one these next year! Outside of academia I enjoy doing yoga and volunteering with climate organisations such as the CFCA. I look forward to meeting you all very soon!”
Maria Paswal, BA Human Geography
“To fulfil my role as treasurer I aim to organise more social events to allow more opportunities for fellow geographers to integrate and communicate within the society. I will keep a financial oversight of budgets and funding in order for more social activities and events to be held this year.”
Social Media Officer
George Forster, BA Human Geography
“Within geography I have a particular interest in urban geography, specifically in urban regeneration and the making and remaking of spaces. As Social media officer, I will be sharing interesting posts about current affairs, environmental issues and update students on changes and events within the geography society.”
Alexandria Crowhurst, BA Geography
“As the charity officer for this year’s Geography Society I will be managing potential charity events to help raise money for local charity causes. I hope to host as many events as possible and look forward to spending another year with the committee!”
