Welcome to the 14th Annual Texas Geography Student Research Symposium (TxGSRS) website. 

The Department of Geography at Texas State University will host the TxGSRS on during the month of March 2020 (date to be determined). The TxGSRS is a free student-led professional one-day conference designed to celebrate and encourage geography students, both graduate and undergraduate, to conduct high quality research. The event provides a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to share their research interests with peers and faculty and to cultivate broader and stronger community within the diverse discipline of Geography.

The event is comprised of:

  • Paper and poster presentations
