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

Fiji Meeting Recap and Weekly Agenda

Good morning! I hope everybody is enjoying the first chilly day of fall this year.
First on the agenda, a recap:

Last week's meeting was very informative. We heard from Bridget, Sarah, and Lauren, three undergraduate students that traveled with the UNT Anthropology Department to Fiji this summer. They put on an excellent presentation. We learned about each of their individual roles in Fiji this summer, including interesting stories about experiences with Habit for Humanity, squatters, living conditions in Fijian slums, interning with international universities, and run ins with the Fijian government.

                                       Pictured: Officers Bridget and Sarah

                         Pictured: Fijian currency, jewelry, and cannibal forks

We also learned about Fijian geography, ceremonies, food, language, customs, and about the study abroad process at UNT. 

For more information regarding the Fiji trip or how you can get involved with the study abroad program, please send us an email at anthropeopleunt@gmail.com. This email sends directly to all six of our officers, so you're guaranteed to get a response from someone who can either help you directly or get you in touch with the correct faculty member. 

For this week:
This Friday there will be an off-week meeting at 5pm in BLB 035, but the activity has yet to be decided. Be on the lookout for an update about this Friday's meeting. It will either be a movie night or a study group night. 

There is a poll up on the Facebook group about volunteering for UNT Make A Difference Day. Make A Difference Day is a day of community service where UNT student orgs do volunteer work at various Denton county non-profits. This semester, Make A Difference Day is on Saturday, October 22nd from 9am-2pm. If you would like to volunteer with us, please vote on Facebook, message us on Facebook, direct message on Twitter, or email me at anthropeopleunt@gmail.com. Registration closes this Friday, September 30th, so I'm trying to get a headcount!

Have a great week guys! See you on Friday.

Hey Anthros!

Our first general meeting of the semester was a great success and we had a blast meeting all of the new potential members. :-)

Please join us again this Friday, September 23rd in BLB 035 at 5pm as we meet up for our second general meeting to hear from some of the students that traveled abroad to Fiji with the anthropology department this summer. This meeting will be an extraordinary opportunity to learn about Fijian culture, the role of non-governmental organizations in Fiji, and how the study abroad process works for those interested in potentially taking their own trip!
