Sociology Student Association

The Sociology Student Association gives students the opportunity to engage in service, contribute to campus academic events, network with other future professionals, learn from current professionals working in their fields, gain leadership experience, and have fun! Past activities include participating in the Super Saturday of Service, a tour of the Indianapolis Re-entry Educational Facility, a screening of the documentary Marble Hill: Unsafe at Any Price and conversation with the filmmaker, conversations with local politicians, and donation collection for the nursery at the Indiana Women's Prison.

Honor society
