AMS is a student organization that provides a meeting place for students interested in atmospheric science. It helps build valuable network ties among students by participating in various educational, community service, and fundraising events. Guest speakers and tours of local weather facilities give the students an opportunity to learn more about the careers offered in atmospheric sciences.
The purpose of ASGSA is to provide atmospheric science graduate student feedback to the Department of Atmospheric Sciences Graduate Committee, unite graduate students throughout the department through organized sponsored events and activities, and provide opportunities for professional growth. Those eligible to join ASGSA are anyone who is a student at the University of North Dakota taking graduate-level classes in the Atmospheric Sciences Department or has an assistantship through the Atmospheric Sciences Department (GRA, GTA, or GSA), and has paid the required dues. We meet about three times a semester.
