Student Involvement

Lambda Alpha 

UTC has a very active Gamma Chapter of Lambda Alpha: National Collegiate Honor Society for Anthropology.   This is a student run organization and students must apply for membership.  Student members organize activities that help promote greater understanding of the discipline, provide opportunities to interact with faculty and alumni of the UTC Anthropology degree program, and allow a forum to discuss course work, research and internship opportunities, and strategies to achieve future goals (career options/graduate school).

Membership requirements:

You must be a Junior, Senior, Alumni or Faculty member

You must have completed 12 credit hours of anthropology courses or a combination of 6 credit hours in Sociology and 6 credit hours in Anthropology

GPA in Anthropology of 3.0 or higher; cumulative overall GPA of 2.5 or higher

Lifetime membership fee of $25.00

Dr. Pamela Ashmore is the faculty advisor for the UTC Gamma Chapter of Lambda Alpha.

This year’s President is Kristen O’Connor and she may be reached at:  Kristen-O’Connor@mocs.utc.edu

Any student interested in Anthropology is encouraged to contact Kristen and to participate in any of the meetings or activities sponsored by this group.
