First... Last semester, the department hosted a competition between the undergraduate and graduate anthropology students for the UNT Food Pantry. Whoever donated the most items to the collection bins at the department won a free pizza party, and the undergrads claimed the prize! Thus, the first event ASA is hosting for the spring semester is a Pizza and Game Night.
TOMORROW, Friday 1/27 in BLB060 from 5-7, we will be eating FREE pizza and playing games such as Cards Against Humanity, Jenga, Phase 10, Scattergories, and Yahtzee! If you donated to the bins during the fall semester, this party is for YOU! If you didn't, that's okay too! Feel free to stop by BLB060 to eat pizza and play games with fellow majors, minors, and enthusiasts! All are welcome.
Second... The ASA started a WEBSITE over winter break! For now on, our blog will be used for posts about upcoming events, recaps of meetings, videos of student presentations, news from the department, and pictures/updates from field trips and volunteer events. If you would like more information regarding the logistics behind the ASA, how to join, who are officers are, our purpose, what we do, etc., please visit our new website here.
Third... Over winter break our officers got together to restructure the ASA for Spring 2017. The ASA group in the fall was not nearly as active as planned, but we would like to make up for this by creating a lot of really interesting activities for this semester! Our Google Calendar is updated with our current plans for the spring, but be on the look out for announcements regarding new volunteer opportunities, student presentations, movie and bowling nights, and possibly a field trip to see Bill Nye the Science Guy give a lecture in Dallas...! We are anticipating a great semester and hope for a huge turn out! :)
That's it for now, guys! Remember to check the blog and our other social media sites frequently! Until next time!
