Sociology & Anthropology Student Association

The Sociology & Anthropology Student Association (SASA) is an informal organization designed to bring students with an interest in either sociology or anthropology together. Our meetings have included discussions on a variety of sociological or anthropological issues, guest speakers, film viewings, and field trips. At SASA there are no dues and members are invited to attend meetings in accordance with their availability and interest. SASA is a great way to refine your interests in the fields of anthropology or sociology, network with your peers in the department, and enjoy a light meal with friends once a week.

Meeting Schedule

Each week, SASA meets from 6 – 7 p.m. on Mondays in 947 Renaissance Park.  Dinner is provided every week, please email with any dietary restrictions.
