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).students working with findings from archeology dig
