GeoClub teammates Hannah Daugherty, Alex Blanco-Castano, Giselle Rangel, and Natalie Luther

The UCCS Geography and Environmental Science Club (GeoClub), from the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies (GES), joined six other teams on Saturday, 2 November at SGA to compete in the 7th Annual UCCS National Academic Quiz Tournament (NAQT).
