The club is involved in community service on and off campus.
According to the club they “aim to continually be engaged in their field, in supporting peers, and work to uphold the CPP motto “learn by doing.”
The Anthropological Society hopes to give students the tools they need to succeed by connecting them with professionals in their field.
“Our clubs aims to build a community on campus, and to be a support to our students,” the club’s publicity chair Rafaella Lisboa said.
The Fundraiser was called the Super Blue Blood Moon.
The Anthropological Society sold pizza for $2 a slice.
Cookies, water bottles and soda cans were $1.
The club also offered single slice combos for $4.50, and double slice combos for $6.
