The Sociology Club: Past and Future Events
In addition to weekly discussion of sociological topics, the Sociology Club has engaged in a number of fun and educational activities over the course of this academic year. In the Fall Semester of 2015, the Sociology Club presented at the Pick One Fair for the incoming Freshman Class of 2016, hosted two guest speakers, Professors Jessica Welburn and Mary Noonan, and attended the Psychology/Sociology and Criminology Career Roundtable events. The Sociology Club also hosted an informational presentation about building a professional LinkedIn profile and navigating the LinkedIn website, presented by Jennifer Noyce, the Sociology career advisor from the Pomerantz Career Center.
In the Spring semester of 2016, the Sociology Club also planned several exciting events. On March 10th, we hosted a guest speaker from the Masters of Public Health Program. During this event, a graduate student representative from the program provided an introduction to the field of Public Health and discussed the Masters of Public Health Program here at the University of Iowa. Additionally, the Sociology Club hosted Professor Freda Lynn as a sociology faculty guest speaker on Thursday, March 31st. Finally, the Sociology Club hosted a panel discussion in collaboration with representatives in charge of the University of Iowa’s theme semester on social justice, entitled “Just Living”. This event brought together University of Iowa faculty members from the departments of Sociology, Psychology ,Anthropology and Religious Studies. The topic of this panel was “The Impact of Religion on Mental Health Outcomes and Infrastructure”.
