Sociology Students Association (SSA)

Attention all Sociology Students!

Here is your chance to make a difference...
We are looking for a year 1/2 representative to attend departmental meetings. If you are currenlty in the first or second year and you are a Sociology Major you, could fill this important role. If you are interested, please e-mail Professor Lauren Corman.

The SSA is always looking for more students to help us plan events. If you have an idea for an event or you want to join the SSA, please e-mail Professor Corman.

The Sociology Students Association is what we are here to talk about...
For 1st year students, you can come out and meet the people you see in class but still have no idea as to their names….

For 2nd year students, you can get some guidance from upper year classmates as to which courses are needed and which courses are fun. You may even get help with papers if you want to go that far...

For 3rd year students, you can get help setting up all the things you need to apply to 4th year or if you're in a 3 year program, you make the contacts you need to apply to teachers college, if that's the route you are choosing…

For 4th years students, you get to make those links that you need for grad school and get the chance to unwind and chat and work amongst your peers from the past 3 years who are in just as deep with readings and stress…

The Focus of the SSA is to:

  • To build friendships
  • To broaden horizons
  • To help you with papers
  • To explain the questions we all know you have.
  • To assist/guide you with getting your SOCI degree

How are we planning to do this?

  • SOCI nights (i.e. bowling, movies, parties )
  • Creating a SOCI student lounge
  • Having career fairs ( i.e. what can you do with a SOCI degree? we'll tell you the endless possibilities )
  • Bringing in teachers/ field experts to talk to you one-on-one
  • Setting up group discussions (there is power in numbers)

To find out more, contact a member or student rep, or come to a meeting. Events will be announced in some classes and posted in the Sociology Department.
