Anthropology Club

The Anthropology Club brings together students interested in the four-fields of anthropology (both as majors and non-majors) in order to engage with the core concerns of discipline in settings beyond the classroom.  The Club is open to everyone and we encourage people to join us who are interested in all things human, from our origins as a species (biological), to our cultural development (archaeology), to how we live in present communities (cultural), to how we communicate (linguistics).

Join others with similar interests for comradeship and even, occasionally, pizza!  A great way to connect with like-minded students and share a learning experience–exciting, and just fun.

Activities of the Club include:

  • Field trips
  • The Works in Progress Series
  • Invited speakers
  • Conferences
  • Book and bake sales
  • Movie screenings
