This club serves as a place to discuss anthropological ideas, promote interdisciplinary exposure to the four sub-fields, and, as a whole, expand Colorado College's anthropological community.

All community members are welcome to attend meetings and events. SAS leadership is chosen at the end of the year based on feedback from regular attendees. Final decisions are made by outgoing leaders. There are two primary leadership positions: two co-presidents. The society convenes once every block at 12:15 pm and hosts regular events throughout the year, including lunches, film screenings, field trips, and, of course, Anthropology Day. Please email Patrick Kewin or Amalie Hipp to be added to the email list for updates.
