Letter From the President
Hello! My name is Keyona Rodgers and I am the President of Sociology Club. The Sociology Club is a group of open minded and creative individuals striving to inspirer the community around us. We often have meeting that involve current events and how they affect our lives socially. In the past semesters we have had meeting on: the election, cultural appropriation, the Women’s March, Black Lives Matter, addiction patterns in the U.S, and many other interesting topics. We even conducted a social experiment we called “The Line”, which allowed us to get to know other UA students from very different backgrounds and beliefs in hopes of making our student community as inviting as possible.
As president I plan to continue having meetings and conducting research on things that effect our members as students and members of our society. The club is always open to new ideas on topics to discus and conduct research so please offer your opinion! We always appreciate it! The club is not only for sociology majors, we are open to all majors! We have had members from all backgrounds ranging from Biology to Marketing. There are also opportunities to present research at conferences, make academic connections, information on internships, and find mentorship from people experienced in the field of sociology. Overall, Sociology Club is a great experience that gives you a family feeling atmosphere with many great academic and professional opportunities. We hope you will join us at one of our activities and maybe even consider joining our club!
