Hilltopper GIScience Club WKU GIS Student Club Logo Image


The club was established in September of 2013. The creation of this club is to share ideas and knowledge to anyone else who is affiliated with GIS at WKU.  All Students interested in GIS or are currently enrolled in their first GIS course are welcomed to join the club! 

If interested, contact:

Taylor Berzins at 
or Austin Williams at

You may also contact them in regards to GIS outreach, volunteer
events, mapping projects or any other related GIS activities.


The Hilltopper Geographic Information Science Club's goal is to 1) be able to share knowledge with one another and 2) establish ties between the GIScience students with local, regional, and academic professionals to create a Southern Kentucky GIS User Group.
