The purpose of this organization is to increase the popularity of our common interests. We hope to add new members so we will be able to grow and expand. We hope to hold joint meetings with FSUAS, and increase students' interest in our organization. We also want to give members volunteer opportunities with field work. By developing relationships and friendships, the organization will become even stronger.
Our mission is to keep members of the organization informed with Anthropological and Archaeological matters. We will provide an outlet for members to come listen to professional presentations. Field trips to Archaeological sites will be planned, along with annual cleanups to the Velda Mound site complex off of Thomasville road. Occasional volunteer fieldwork opportunities will be made available to PAST members as they become available. Members of PAST strive to make a difference by educating the public and expanding our reach.
