Student Organizations

The Sociology Club (Synergy) and Alpha Kappa Delta Honors Society

Because everyone has a hand in making the world a better place.

Tarleton's sociology club, was founded in 1995 as a resource to students interested in broadening their sociological knowledge. The Sociology Club serves to open discussion of important events, enhance classroom learning, and highlight topics impacting society as a whole.

In the Sociology Club meetings, topics can include gender roles, race, religion, family, economics, and many more. At each meeting, members introduce and discuss issues of their choice. 

All students with an interest in sociology can be a part of The Sociology Club. Meetings take place in a relaxed atmosphere and provide opportunities to meet students who share common concerns and goals.
