The Anthropological Society is the principal student organization associated with the Anthropology Department. During the academic year, the society meets during campus lifetime (Wednesdays 12:30-2:00 p.m.) in the Undergraduate Student Lounge (SBS S-506). The Anthropology Society organizes invited lectures by scholars, study groups, excursions to regional sites and museums, the annual Spring Goat Roast, and other social and scholarly activities.

Those graduate and undergraduate students interested in functional morphology meet for a weekly Functional Morphology Group (FunMorG) seminar.
