Anthropology & Sociology

West Chester University

Sociology Club

The 2013-2014 academic year promises to be exciting for the Sociology Club! With plans to attend conferences both in Pennsylvania and Maryland, tour the Penn Museum, host talks on campus with professors, and volunteer and explore in the community, there will be plenty of opportunities for YOU to become involved. Make it a point to come join us - we are a club open to all majors!

We hold meetings every other Tuesday from 3:30-4:00 pm in Sykes. For the most up to date information about meetings and events, check out our bulletin board in the basement of Old Library, outside room 03D. If you have any questions or are interested in joining our club, please feel free to contact any of our executive board members or our advisor, Dr. Jackie Zalewski.
