Lambda Alpha Honor Society
Lambda Alpha is the national honors organization for anthropology; the name "Lambda Alpha" is derived from the Greek words "Logos Anthropou," meaning "tthe study of man." The Alpha Rhode Island Chapter at the University of Rhode Island was founded in 2012 and is the first in Rhode Island. The society is student run, by members holding the offices of President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
Officers are elected during the Spring Semester for the upcoming school year, so if you would like to hold a position please contact the current officers as early as possible.

Anthropology Honor Society
URI Anthropology students have been chartered as the Alpha Rhode Island Chapter of Lamda Alpha, the national anthropology honor society. This is a tribute to the hard work of several students and to the academic excellence of our majors and our faculty. Right now, the recruitment of charter members is underway. If you're interested in being one of the first Lamda Alphas, shoot off an email to Ashley Waggoner for all the details.
The URI Anthropology Society is also up and running. Check out their page too.
