Spring 2017 Meeting Time: Fridays 5:00 PM in BLB060

We are a group of students at the University of North Texas in Denton. We focus on educating ourselves and others about the four fields of anthropology, and how they are relevant to our daily lives.
We spend our time giving back to our community (on and off campus), holding events for fellow students, and exploring new ways to have fun.

If you're at UNT, feel free to come hangout! All Anthro majors, minors, and enthusiasts are welcome. :)
Feel free to email us with any comments or questions - anthropeopleunt@gmail.com

Our dead sea scrolls experience!

This weekend, ASA woke up bright and early in order to spend our day at Southwestern Seminary in Ft Worth, to visit the dead sea scrolls exhibit! Here are some photos from our experience in the exhibit. We were not allowed to take photos inside the actual exhibit itself. In fact the rooms which contained the original dead sea scrolls were kept to a limited number of people at a time, a certain degrees, and limited lighting. The methods of preservation were really neat to see!

At the simulated Qumran dig site.

How many anthropology students does it take to re-create pottery?

reporting back on a very successful garage sale!

First and foremost a big THANK YOU to all those who donated material to our yard sale!

We raised enough money to fund our trip to the visit the dead sea scrolls!!

Below are some photos from the sale! ( we had a lot of clothing left over that will be donated to the denton frirends of the family)

Planking cat. It tried out all our furniture. 

The books sold at the garage sale do not reflect the ideologies of ASA :p 

Does this one need a caption?

recycling at tailgating!

ASA volunteered at the homecoming tailgating to recycle and keep the area clean!

Here is a pic from our time together! After the clean up, we all ate pizza! which was awesome after working at tailgating. 

A big thanks to all those who showed up! Without you all, ASA would not be what it is today!
