Welcome back! Hope everyone had a good winter break. The Anthropology Club has a TON of upcoming events this semester which we are all very excited to share with you!! Listed below are a few of the major events (courtesy of Danielle’s email sent out earlier this week):
When: Thursday January 21st from 6-8 pm
Where: 2nd floor of the Union
What: This is our chance to tell people why our club is awesome and to recruit new members! Also, we will have the anthro club t-shirts available, so if you haven’t had a chance to buy one ($15) yet this is one opportunity to do so.
Other: I have actually had plenty of people already volunteer to help out, but if you’d like to help we definitely won’t say no If you’d prefer to just stop by and say ‘hi’ that is great too! We’ll have candy (this should be incentive in itself)!!
1st Club Meeting of Spring 2010
When: Thursday January 28th from 8 pm — whenever you want to leave (no later than 10).
Where: Kale Yoder’s apartment–1122 Kearny (Apt 15)
What: We will be discussing and brainstorming other upcoming events. Once that is done, get ready to jam out to some Beatles Rock Band and hang out/get to know one another. Feel free to bring snacks!
When: Friday February 12th from 6-8 pm
Where: Frith Community Center (Jardine)
What: A relaxing time to mingle with other club members and our wonderful Professors. Bring your favorite international dish to share! Be creative! And feel free to bring friends!

What: CSAS is a student-friendly conference covering a variety of different topics. A lot of our club members will be presenting this year, so come and show your support. More info can be found here: http://www.creighton.edu/groups/csas/annualmeeting/index.php

SAA–Society for American Archaeology

Where: St. Louis, Missouri
What: The 75th Anniversary meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. This is essential for students wishing to pursue a career in archaeology. More information can be found here: http://www.saa.org/AbouttheSociety/AnnualMeeting/tabid/138/Default.aspx

*Registration forms for SALSA and CSAS conferences were attached in the email that Danielle (club president) sent out earlier this week. If you are interested in either conference and, for whatever reason, do not have access to these documents, please let a club officer know and we can take care of that for you.
**If you wish to attend any of the above conferences with the Anth Club, please let Danielle know ASAP, as we need a definite headcount in order to apply for extra funding to help cover expenses!!
