Sociology & Anthropology

Social Events

The Sociology and Anthropology Department hosts many annual events that bring together faculty, students, and alumni.  For instance, every year, we have a department picnic and an end of the year dinner with faculty and students.  Sociology faculty, students, and alumni also get together every year at the American Sociological Association meetings for a dinner.  The department has hosted a faculty, student, and alumni reception over Homecoming weekend, department kickball games, and other social events designed to facilitate community within our department.  If you would like to know the details about upcoming events, email the department chair for details!
