Undergraduate Clubs

Rutgers Anthropology Club

The Rutgers Anthropology Club is open to majors and minors as well as any interested undergraduates. The goal of the club is to create a space for intellectual growth and community development by bringing students together, allowing for a deeper understanding of each other through conversation and projects. 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. Meetings are held Thursdays at 8:00 pm in the Ruth Adams Building third floor Atrium.  Join us for a meeting! 

From Club President:

Welcome to the Anthropology Club! We are open to all students, regardless of your major or previous experiences with anthropology. Our weekly meetings will explore a wide array of anthropological topics, from Early Modern Humans to Robots! Our motto, “Anything Human”, is what guides our meeting topics. We discuss art, history, prehistory, religion, holidays, forensics, social justice, remote tribes, modern technology, and much more. If you are interested in anthropology but don’t know where to start, joining Anthropology Club is a great way to learn a little about everything. Occasionally, we will have guest speakers, including professors, alumni, and other professionals in the field, come in to talk about their research, careers, and to answer your questions about what a career in anthropology could be. (These meetings will have free food!) We will also take free museum trips around campus to the Geology Museum, Zimmerli Art Museum as well as a larger trip to the MET in the Spring.

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.
