15 UCM undergraduate Sociology majors attended the California Sociological Association annual conference in Sacramento this past Friday and Saturday. They attended half a dozen talks, networked with peers, grad students, and faculty from other campuses, and toured the state capitol building. Four of the students from the UROC program presented research in which they served as assistants this past summer. The students were joined by Soc club advisor Prof. Alegria and graduate students Alejandro Zermeño and Maria Mora.

The mission of CSA is to promote the scientific study of society among interested persons within the state of California; to stimulate discussion and encourage cooperative relations among people engaged in the scientific study of society; and to further the aims of instruction, practice and research in the field of sociology.
