Letter From the President
Hello! My name is Megan Delong and I am the current president of the University of Akron’s Sociology Club. We strive to provide quality, immersive, and hands-on experiences for students regarding contemporary sociological issues through networking, experiments, and discussion. During the past semester, we participated in a Cube discussion on consent with another student organization called Defined Lines, held a paint night, and travelled to conferences to present data. Our discussion topics included: the Me Too movement against sexual assault, extremist groups, Black History Month, career opportunities, addiction, and basic sociological theory.
This semester I would like to focus on providing our officers and members with more volunteering opportunities, and offering new experiences like conferences to members that have never been to one. If you’re taking a sociology course this semester, or even just want to find out what sociology is, Sociology Club is always taking new members! We are open to all University
of Akron students, regardless of major. You can meet people that come from different walks of life and develop skills needed for entry level positions at the same time. We are very excited to provide fresh perspectives and ask interesting questions, and we hope you join us!"
