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. In April 2012, we held our first ever department kickball game — we’ll have another this upcoming spring. These events are fun and serve to facilitate networks of sociologists and anthropologists across generations and groups. If you would like to know the details about upcoming events, email the department chair for details!
