Anthropology Club

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!

Dr. Katherine Lambert-Pennington organized a two-part event with the Omni School students and the Anthropology Club.  The first event, held Friday, April 11th, gave the Omni School students an opportunity to ask questions about college life and the field of anthropology.  For the second event, on Tuesday, April 22nd, Anthropology Club students and Omni School students attended the AAA Race Exhibit at the Pink Palace together. The Anthropology Club plans to continue this partnership with the Omni School in the future.  The following are photos from the two events:

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 on all the runners who braved the snowy weather.  We also want to give special congratulations to club members Mallory Bader, Jeanne Hanna, and Kenny Latta who all medaled in the race! relic run
