Geographic Information Science Student Organization (GISSO) is a student group composed of GISc and GSEN students. The goal of the group is to promote education in the fields of GIS and Surveying. Throughout the year, the students participate in fundraising and volunteer events. The group meets weekly at the Conrad Blucher Institute to discuss upcoming events and brainstorm ideas.
The GISSO List-Serv is heavily used by students, faculty and alumni. This list is primarily used for event announcements, job/internship announcements, meeting updates and University announcements.
