Rites and Rituals

Each semester the Department of Anthropology customarily marks and celebrates important events and milestones of students' accomplishments. Our department graduation ceremonies take place in both December and May so that students and their families can commemorate this important milestone achievement in a small and personal setting. Professors recognize the student's growth and accomplishments. They also share significant elements of the students' university experience with the audience. In addition, the department gets together for potlucks, picnics and dinners during the academic year. The Anthropology Student Organization (ASO) organizes events as well, including fundraisers, and meetings and field trips to museums and conferences that give students opportunities to exchange ideas, network with each other, and build camaraderie.
