Club activities are selected during meetings, including occasional trips centered on anthropology topics.  The club aims to bridge together students with the Anthropology Department, allowing better access to professors and helping to serve department needs.

From Club President:

I'm Sophia, the President of the Anthropology Club here at Rutgers! We meet every other Monday, 8pm at the Douglass Student Center. Our meetings are member run, which means you can talk about whatever you like! Members will pick a topic for each meeting and either talk about it as a group or have a discussion leader present. The topics can range from ethics to music to myths to "strange" practices of other cultures- whatever you're interested in! Since we meet in person every other week, on the weeks off we have Zoom meetings. On the weekends, we can meet up somewhere on campus for fun activities. Last weekend, we went to the Rutgers Ecological Preserve for a nature walk! We are planning to go to the Geological Museum and the Art Museum here at Rutgers too. Our big trip this term is the Philadelphia Art Museum! We do need to get permission to go and we have our fingers crossed, however we have more museum trips planned for next semester if this one doesn't work out, have no fear! We also have various meetings throughout the year with professors and grad students regarding grad school applications, options after undergrad for anthropology majors, and field school info sessions. If you would like to join us, our GroupMe info is in the attached flyer!  Hope to see you soon!

Rutgers Archaeological Society (RUAS)

RAS Club

The Rutgers Archaeological Society was founded to give undergraduates with an interest in the field of archaeology an opportunity to meet and share in discussions and activities, including field trips and guest speakers. The club now acts as a resource for students studying Anthropology and Evolutionary Anthropology on many fronts, serving as peer advisors for students pursuing a major and offering advice on classes and coursework. The club also provides interested students with information on how to access opportunities to work in the field.  Attend the next meeting to see what the Archeological Society is all about.
