The Anthropology Club is a registered student organization at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, affiliated with the Department of Anthropology.

The goal of the club is to foster interest in anthropology among the SIUE community.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in anthropology and affiliated with SIUE. Members do not have to be majors or minors in anthropology. Voting members and officers have additional requirements of maintaining a 2.0 grade point average, and payment of dues ($5.00 per semester). All other individuals may participate as associate members, and are welcome at all meetings, programs, and activities.

The SIUE chapter of the National Collegiate Honors Society for Anthropology, Lambda Alpha, conducts activities in cooperation with the Anthropology Club. Undergraduate students interested in becoming a member of Lambda Alpha must have completed at least 12 credit hours of anthropology courses, have a 3.0 grade point average or better in anthropology courses, and a 2.5 grade point average overall. Please visit Lambda Alpha's national homepage for more information.

The Anthropology Club organizes and participates in a number of activities. These have included SIUE Preview, "ethnic dinner nights" at local restaurants, field trips to local and regional sites of interest (e.g., Cahokia Mounds ), and guest speakers.

If you are interested in more information about the Anthropology Club, please contact one of the officers, or our faculty adviser (email addresses below).
