First on the agenda... This week is our second special event of the semester called Meet An Anthropologist. We will have a few guest speakers from the anthropology department come in to talk to us about their careers. This is an incredible opportunity for exposure to different career options in the social sciences, so don't miss out! Come hang with us in BLB035 at 5 pm. The officers will provide tacos so enjoy free food while you listen to our amazing panel of guest speakers! See the flyer below for details.
Next, as many of you already know, the Anthropology Department was chosen to represent the UNT Food Pantry for the month of November. The UNT Food Pantry was established by the Dean of Students to help combat hunger and address food insecurity in students. Help us collect items for the pantry, whose cause is extremely important! The graduate and undergraduate students are competing to collect the most food, and right now we are neck-and-neck. The ASA officers went out this weekend and purchased $100 worth of food to help stock the pantry and defeat the grad students.
Current Graduate Donations on Top, Current Undergraduate Donations on Bottom
Any and every donation helps, guys! Even if all you can bring is one canned good or a single pack of instant rice. The pantry accepts canned chicken or tuna, peanut butter, low-sodium canned vegetables, low-sugar canned fruit, popcorn, soup, instant rice, beans, chili, pasta sides, nuts, mashed potatoes, fruit snacks, granola bars, boxed cereal, oatmeal, crackers, pudding, toothpaste, tooth brushes, and feminine hygiene products. Donate to our box in the department, or bring your contributions to the ASA meetings for your officers to deliver them for you. We'll have a donation box at all meetings between now and when the CONTEST ENDS ON DECEMBER 2ND. Winners get a pizza party, complementary of the department!
