Anthropology Club

The Anthropology Club at the University of Northern Iowa, has had a long history of undergraduate student engagement. We have traveled to eastern Iowa to visit the effigy mounds, explored the Field Museum in Chicago, and visited the anthropology graduate program at Iowa State University. Meetings are held biweekly but are not always business oriented. We have game night, movie night or invite guest speakers to present to the club. Membership is free and open to anyone with an interest in anthropology. For more information, or to be put on the email list, please contact the club faculty advisor: Dr. Tyler O’Brien at
