Anthropology Club

Anthropology Club membership is open to all students regardless of major. The Club is an active presence on campus, coordinating a monthly film-and-pizza series, trips to local and regional museum exhibits, student and professional conference attendance, and "ethnic food nights" at area restaurants. The club also hosts important guest speakers in its series.

The Anthropology Club meets every other Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. in the Atrium of the Old Library Building. Please email if you would like to be added to our mailing list!
