With the support of Assistant Teaching Professor Michel Estefan, a group of sociology majors have formed a new undergraduate organization known as “Sociology Community.” The group had their first preparatory meeting on January 22, 2024. According to convenor Amber Fig, “Our main goal is to become a resource center for undergraduate sociology students, whether that be releasing opportunities for research/internships; helping plan classes, and even study hours to assist with homework. We want sociology students to feel like there is a place for them to turn to!
The group recently held a second meeting. They invited Professor Kevin Lewis to give a mini-lecture on the sociology of love. The organization plans to hold another event about applying to graduate schools in the near future.
