Sociology Club

The 2013-2014 academic year was an exciting one for the Sociology Club! We attended academic conferences in Pennsylvania and Maryland, toured the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, hosted talks on campus with professors, and volunteered and explored the community. And we have lots of exciting plans for this year, too! Make it a point to come join us - we are a club open to all majors!

We hold meetings every other Tuesday at 3:30-4 p.m. 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 faculty advisor (see below).

We had a pizza party at the end of April to celebrate the end of the year and congratulate our graduates.

  • Megan Gates presented “Undervalued Qualities of HopinShop Managers”
  • Amanda Hallowell presented “Investigating the Accessibility and Reproduction of Hierarchies Associated with Assisted Reproductive Technologies”
