Information for Students

The NEAA Annual Meeting offers ample opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to present research alongside faculty and other practicing anthropologists in formal and informal forums. Students are strongly encouraged to present their research. These meetings provide opportunities to exchange ideas, receive feedback, and to learn how to present research ideas.

A Note from the SUNY Potsdam Anthropology Club:

As Undergraduate Student Representatives of this year’s NEAA conference, we look forward to welcoming you all to our campus. The NEAA’s offer you the opportunity to present your own research and is a great place to begin networking with future employers and fellow students. By attending the conference, you will become familiar with ongoing anthropological research within the Northeast.

Potsdam is a small college town located in beautiful upstate New York. The college sits along the Raquette River surrounded by farmlands and the Amish community. Located a short drive from the Adirondack Mountains, there are many outdoor locations to explore.

We invite you to a student “Meet and Greet” which we will be hosting on campus Friday morning. This “Meet and Greet” will give you the chance to get to know fellow students, share experiences, and build connections. We hope your overall conference experience will allow you to create valuable skills for furthering your career in Anthropology.

If you have any questions regarding the conference or about things to do in the “North Country”, feel free to contact either:
