Goals of mine for the Sociology Club include spreading knowledge and information about sociology to other University of Akron students. I also want students of various majors and backgrounds to become familiar with the club and hopefully involved. Sociology Club is a club for anyone of any concentration. I have been welcomed into the club with open arms and the fact that everyone has been so welcoming and willing to help me further demonstrates the notion of Sociology Club really being a support group more than anything. Another goal for Sociology Club is to help students make real-world connections and to learn information that can go beyond the classroom. I also want Sociology Club to inspire students to think outside of the norm and to develop critical sociological skills using information and applying it to their everyday lives. I think Sociology Club should be a place where students can hone their skills and passions, a place where students can learn of their likes and dislikes, while building meaningful relationships with fellow students and faculty. I think Sociology Club should be the place where students and faculty can come together and do some really amazing things with the help of one another.
