Outside the Classroom Learning
Alpha Kappa Delta
Our department maintains a chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta-the International Sociology Honors Society. Sociology majors and minors with a minimum GPA of 3.0 are invited for induction into AKD. The UNO chapter is very active, hosting several events during the academic year. The chapter also provides leadership opportunities for sociology students. More information on AKD is available through AKD student and faculty officers.
Student Anthropological Association
The Student Anthropological Association (SAA) is open to all UNO students with an interest in Anthropology. The SAA is both a social and academic organization, which meets regularly to talk "anthropology" and enjoy social interaction. The SAA brings speakers on anthropological topics to campus, hosts annual themed lunches (The Paleolithic Picnic and Picnic of the Americas), and works on community projects with an anthropological angle - such as our recent participation in building a traditional Plains earthlodge.
The Sociology Club at UNO is open to all sociology majors and minors regardless of GPA. The club provides opportunities for sociology students to interact with one another, discusses issues pertaining to sociology and the Sociology Department, engages in social and academic issues of concern to its members, as well as hosts events of interest to the students. More information on the Sociology Club is available through the club officers.
