Student Organizations

We are committed to offering students an exciting and challenging academic experience. In addition to regular coursework and fieldwork opportunities, we also offer students additional ways to participate in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. The following organizations are a great way for students to get to know faculty better, hang out with like-minded peers, have fun and stimulating discussions, and enhance their undergraduate experience at SLU!

Anthropology Club

The Anthropology Club was established by a group of Anthropology students and faculty interested in learning more about the application and potential careers in the field, as well as the relevance Anthropology has in many aspects of our studies and lives outside of the classroom. We seek to extend SLU's Oath of Inclusion, encouraging and promoting dialogue and understanding with the diverse community around us. All are welcome!  ACJS Constitution is available for review.

If you would like any information on the Anthropology Club, please email sluanthroclub@gmail.com.
