Our anthropology club welcomes all graduate and undergraduate students interested
in learning more about our incredibly broad discipline. As students, we often have
such busy schedules that it's nice to get together in a fun, informative, and casual
environment; the club gives us a chance to share information about campus activities,
research opportunities, and interesting events around the Memphis area. We regularly
hold information panels about our graduate department and the job opportunities available
to anthropologists, and many club members volunteer for local events like the Relic
Run at Chucalissa. For the most up-to-date club information check out our Facebook page or contact one of our officers!

|Chucalissa is one of our favorite places to visit and this year the club was happy
to support the 2013 Relic Run 5K. Several of our members helped out with holding signs, pouring water, and cheering
