The Anthropology Students’ Association represents you – an Undergraduate Student at the University of Toronto St. George – in all matters within the Department of Anthropology. We act as your voice for any concerns and questions you may have about U of T’s Anthropology programs and courses. We house valuable resources including a collection of past tests, past course syllabi, first-hand advice on courses and programs, and more (Check out the link on our homepage entitled “Past Tests and Course Syllabi”)! We also sell a variety of merchandise and services including T-Shirts, coffee, printing/scanning/copying/faxing services, and locker rentals (See the link on our homepage entitled “Sales, Merchandise, and Locker Rentals”).

In addition to providing academic services the ASA is here to make sure your university experience is enjoyable and fun! We host events such as movie nights, bake sales, lecture series, pub nights, and more! Our services are not limited to only Undergraduate Students, and anyone interested in the Anthropology Community is welcomed to get involved with us!

Best part… only $15 a T-Shirt!!! The T-Shirts are also very high quality 100% cotton shirts. They are very comfortable, fit great, and last a very long time even after many washes (they are very similar to American Apparel shirts).
