A message from your club leadership…
Anthro Club is a forum for anthropologists of all levels to come together and explore new ideas, develop meaningful experiences and participate in the surrounding community. Our goals are to develop a resource for students to facilitate greater awareness about humanity and culture among themselves and throughout their community. We want to initiate a community presence for the UNC Anthropology Department and create important connections between students and faculty. We encourage everyone to help us direct the path of the club throughout the year and to share your ideas and feedback. As always, students, faculty, staff and friends are always welcome to attend and contribute to all Anthro Club events and meetings.
We look forward to seeing you!
President Alexandra Krumtum & Officers Holly Berg, Wendy Wright, Caity Miller and Jennifer Wright
