ASA and the Student Forum Welcome Students!

The ASA welcomes the attendance of undergraduate and graduate students at the Annual Meeting. All students who join ASA as student members automatically become members of the Student Forum. Special arrangements for students include discounted registration fees, special housing blocks, workshops oriented to issues of interest to students, student paper and roundtable sessions, and space for an informal Student Center.

Student Reception
All students registered to attend the Annual Meeting are invited to a special student reception co-hosted by the Student Forum on Monday, August 20, at 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Special Poster Sessions
Be sure to attend the Research Support Poster Session on Sunday afternoon and the Data Resources Poster Session on Monday morning to advance your work in sociology. On Monday, August 20, from 2:30-5:30, come view the displays of graduate programs in sociology and talk to program representatives.

Student Sessions
Whether you are planning to attend graduate school, or are further along and look to employment in sociological practice or the academy, please take a look at the professional and teaching workshops. Donít let the huge program overwhelm you. Start by looking at the roundtable and paper sessions sponsored by the Student Forum and then check the Searchable Program posted on the website to identify other sessions in your particular areas of interest.
