Letter From the President
Hello everyone! My name is Nicole Wegman and I am the President of The Sociology Club. We strive to help students expand their sociological imagination and personal development through discussion-based meetings, social experiment activities, and networking events. During the past semester, our organization held 14 meetings, listened to guest speaker Dontez James, participated in on-campus events such as Make A Difference Day, and helped our fellow students study and unwind during our Finals Week Study Tables. Our discussions included topics such as: police brutality, the ethicality of our clothing, mass incarceration, and the Black Panthers. We also, recreated our social experiment called “The Line,” to better understand how our different backgrounds influence our experience. This semester, I would like to focus not only on holding our regular meetings, but also encouraging our members to develop as sociologists. I plan to do this by participating in several undergraduate conferences and holding workshops on how to utilize our analytical skills post-graduation.
Are you taking a Sociology course this semester? Maybe you have never heard of sociology before. Either way, we would love for you to join our organization! The Sociology Club is open to all UA students, regardless of major. This is a great way to meet new people on campus while developing valuable skills that can be helpful in your academic and professional career. We are all very excited for this upcoming semester and hope that you consider attending one of our meetings or joining our organization.
