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

Adopt-A-Block/Bowling Deets

Hey friends,

I wanted to remind everyone that ASA is NOT meeting this Wednesday.

Instead, we're going to clean our Adopt-a-block spot at 5pm!

If you're not driving, we'll all be meeting up at the bus stop that is across the street from
Willis Library on Highland Street.
Be there at or before 4:40pm, because our bus leaves at 4:45pm!

If you're driving, you can meet us by the soccer fields, close to Eagle Pt. and the Athletic Academic Center.

Cleaning our spot should take no longer than 20 minutes! :)

After cleaning, we're headed straight to University Lanes Bowling Alley, around 6pm.
Price for bowling: about $8 per person (this includes bowling + shoe rental!)

See y'all soon :)

Free $$$

Scholarships are amazing. So I'm dedicating a quick blog post to them. :)

In case y'all didn't get the email, PACS has an entire page of scholarships to offer (click here), and all you have to do is fill out an application and write a couple 250 word essays.

250 WORDS.
250. WORDS.

Last year, 0 Anthropology students applied for these. :(

Scholarships are EVERYWHERE. (ex: Chegg.com, Scholarships.com)
So why the hell would you use your hard earned money for classes when people are giving out money left and right?!

When all else fails, you could always google search: "anthropology scholarships"!


Happy essay-writing!

On Fliering!

(taken from the Facebook file on fliering)

As events like Meet an Anthropologist and Life After College get closer, we're going to be advertising by posting fliers everywhere we can!
Here are some guidelines about where is appropriate to do your fliering.

At UNT, only post:

- in buildings on bulletin boards (that allow all fliers; some boards allow only their department to post)
- in buildings where you see other fliers
- outside where you see other fliers
Do not post:
- on windows
- in bathrooms
- on walls in classrooms
- on department only boards

Denton Community:
- Big Mike's
- The Square (if posting in building, ask permission first)
- Recycled Books

~ if you're unsure about somewhere, just ask! ~
