November 17th 2015 Sociology Club Newsletter


A humongous thank you is in order for all the Sociology Club members who came to volunteer for Chalk the Walk on Sunday! It was such a delight to have you all there and help out. Everyone did a wonderful job with their artsy skills! And lucky for us, it didn't rain yesterday so all your hard work didn't wash away. Take a look at all these pictures for a quick recap.

My name is Winnie Tran, and I am Vietnamese American. I am aiming to become a Civil Rights lawyer, and I signed up for sociology club because social issues are very important to me! I have always wanted to be a part of a collective force (such as this club), and it's been good to get out of my comfort zone by being here and meeting new people. My favorite event thus far is the Genderly Speaking event, and I had a lot of fun volunteering and going to the meetings. Everyone has been so kind, and I know that I can come in and talk to anyone in the club (even though I am a bit shy) and feel welcomed. I love it here!
