Sociology Student Organizations
While studying and getting good grades is important, there is more to life as a college student than going to class. Deepen your college experience and build your resume by getting involved in a club related to your field of study.
Alpha Kappa Delta
Students majoring in sociology are eligible for memberships in Alpha Kappa Delta, the sociology honorary society. The purpose of the honor society is to promote scholarship, but the focus has always been fellowship for students, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. To become a member of AKD, you have to be at least a junior and have accumulated the equivalent of an overall grade point average of 3.0 in sociology, with at least 12 hours of sociology course-work.
The Sociology Club is open to sociology majors and non-major alike. The club holds social events and academic seminars to provide those students with an interest in sociology to meet and socialize with other like-minded individuals. The Club also conducts fundraising activities, proceeds from which are used to allow students to attend the annual Midwest Sociological Society meeting each spring.
Please contact the Sociology and Social Work Department to learn more about these department-sponsored clubs. In addition, take advantage of the 100+ student clubs and organizations available to you at FHSU, ranging from special interest clubs and departmental organizations to honorary societies, Greek Life and student government.
