Halloween Murder Mystery Extravaganza

posted Oct 21, 2014, 7:26 AM by Pitt Undergrad Anthropology

This year because October is great and has five weeks, we have decided to throw a Halloween party and what is a Halloween party without murder, mystery, and food.  Join the Anthropology Club on October 29th at 8:30 PM in the lounge for an evening of intrigue and fun! 

FYI! This event is by TICKET only, so you must come pick one up before the 29th in the Advising Office.

See you there...

Anthropology Club is registered as an official PMADD group this year.  In case PMADD is a new phenomena for you, it is Pitt Make a Difference Day.  This year it is on October 18th.  You can spend the day/morning working outdoors with your fellow Anthropology Club mates helping out the local community.  Giving back is great!  You feel good and think about all the things you can learn about people by picking up trash...in case you need specific examples.  See the attached file.

Pottery Night with Dr. Allen

Come join us this Wednesday at 8:30 PM in the Lounge for our first cultural event of the semester.  We are happy to announce that Dr. Allen will be joining us for a pottery "workshop" of sorts.  There will be clay and fixings so you can make delightful ceramic things to take home!  We hope to see you there.

We are happy to announce this semester we will welcome Dr. Giovas, the new visiting scholar to the Center for Comparative Archaeology, and Dr. McCarthy, a former graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh, for P-Night!  I am sure they will have a great deal to profess and there will be pizza, so we hope to see you there.  We will also hear briefly from Dr. Musante about an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students!

September 17th (Wednesday) at 8:30 in the Anthropology Lounge (3106)
