Come to the Sociology Department Research Symposium on May 23rd at 3:30-5 at the UW Club, downstairs
Afterwards high achieving majors have been invited to the Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) induction ceremony dinner with their families at 6pm
AKD was founded in 1920 in order to acknowledge and promote scholastic excellence in the study of Sociology. Every Spring quarter, high performing Sociology majors who meet the appropriate requirements are invited to join the University of Washington’s Alpha Chapter of AKD. Membership in AKD is limited to the top 25% of Sociology majors, based on overall GPA and overall Sociology GPA. Invitations to prospective members are extended after Winter quarter grades have posted. In 2016, 71 students with a UW GPA of 3.00 or greater and a UW Sociology GPA of 3.45 or more were invited to join UW-AKD. The Department’s annual AKD induction Ceremony and Dinner takes place each Spring quarter and is an occasion for inductees and their guests to celebrate alongside Sociology faculty and staff
