The Undergraduate Anthropology Society/Anthropology Undergraduate Advisory Board will be holding a course fair this Monday, March 30th @ 5:15 in Houston Hall (Bishop White Room -217).

Advance registration ends next week, so come to get first-hand accounts of the Anthropology Department's Fall 2009 course offerings and get a list of the courses broken down by requirement.

All students are welcome to attend and food will be served. This is a great opportunity for undergrads to mingle, learn specifics about upcoming courses, and chat with other Anthro majors about their experience with various courses.

Please stop by, even if it is just for a short while!

TIME: Monday, March 30, 5:15 pm
LOCATION: Houston Hall, Bishop White Room (217), second floor (next to OSL office)

Anthropology in the summertime!

Yes you can get paid to study anthro!  The National Science Foundation funds Research Experience for Undergraduate sites at universities around the country.  These are 7-10 week research/training programs that pay undergraduates to come and study/do research.  I found two NSF-REU sites in anthropology running this upcoming summer and wanted to make sure that Penn undergrads studying anthropology were informed about these great opportunities.
