The Behavioral and Social Science Club (BASS)
The BASS Club exists to promote a meeting ground for all students interested in anthropology, psychology, and sociology to share ideas and information. The club typically hosts an event designed to stimulate thinking in the social sciences. For example, the BASS Club hosts a Faculty Forum geared towards answering questions about career opportunities in the behavioral and social sciences. Another popular aspect of the club's activities is the charity event held every semester. The club also hosts speakers each semester to discuss topics in the social sciences. Information on the BASS Club is posted outside room 319 Webster Hall. Stop by the meetings and get involved!
