A renowned anthropologist once stated that “anthropology is the study of oddments by eccentrics.” Possibly with this in mind, the anthropology students at Wake Forest have organized a club to facilitate the exchange of ideas among themselves. The Anthropology Club provides an informal setting where students can identify and explore Communication across the subfields and between undergraduate and graduate students.

The Wake Forest Anthropology Club is a chartered member of the University and holds annual elections of Officers. The Anthropology Club is open to all students, and we encourage anyone with an interest in the subject to join us. If you have any questions, or would like any further information, please call (758-5469) or visit the Anthropology Department. The email contact is: jonesee@wfu.edu.

Each year, the Anthropology Department and the Wake Forest Anthropology Club organize special social events.

The Annual Anthropology Picnic
The stuff of legend and website postings, this event is an opportunity to socialize with your fellow anthropologists away from campus. Usually held during the Fall semester, the Annual Anthropology Club Picnic brings together majors, minors, interested students, faculty, and friends for lively discussion, activities, and of course, feasting.
