Every year the department takes students to the North Central Sociological Association meetings, where several of the students present their work.
The 2015 North Central Sociological Conference will be held in Cleveland, Ohio. We will have several of our current students presenting, as well as a few of the faculty in the department presenting as well.
The department's national honorary is AKD (Alpha Kappa Delta). Students eligible for AKD are of junior status, have at least a 3.5 overal GPA and have 15 credit hours.
In addition to these oppurtunities we also encourage students to participate in an internship, or some sort of field work, that will immerse the student into a potential field that they may be interested in pursuing after graduation.
