Anthropology Club member on a trip

Anthropology Club

The Anthropology Club organizes a variety of activities through out the year including trips, guest speakers and other events, and is open to anyone with an interest in anthropology. Recently, our club went to the Rosamond-Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, where we had the privilege to get a behind-the-scenes tour of their primate facilities, and to Fort Drum where we were given the chance to tour historic sites, view active archaeological excavations, and get a glimpse into the world of cultural resource management.

Check the club page for information on activities, trips and events!

Anthropology students presenting at a conference


When possible students attend the American Anthropological Association conferences and sometimes present their own research. In the past students have traveled to Montreal, Chicago and Washington D.C.

Guest speakers

The department and the Anthropology Club host guest speakers in as many disciplines as possible through out the year. Past speakers include Dr. Lori Rush, an archaeologist who spoke about conservation efforts in the army; Lizette Alvarado, who spoke about her ethnographic field work in Mexico; and Dr. Damien Schofield, who discussed his work in digital crime scene reconstruction and facial reconstruction.
