Student Empowerment in Sociology (SES) is the premier sociology club at the Storrs campus. It provides an opportunity to dip your toe into sociology, the department, and even an opportunity to build meaningful relationships with your peers and faculty. Started by sociology students, for sociology students, SES is a club open to all. Though there are many leadership opportunities, students are encouraged to participate as often or as little as they desire. SES is really designed to enhance students’ sociology careers through meaningful events and discussions. SES is open to students of all majors.

“I learned about sociology during my second year at UConn, and I immediately wanted to get more involved. I joined SES in the middle of the spring semester of my sophomore year, and I was welcomed with open arms. Since then, I’ve not only gotten more involved, but I’ve helped to foster a sense of community among not only sociology majors, but anyone interested in sociology. In SES, we discuss the best courses to take, the newest research opportunities in the department, and current events that related to sociology. I encourage anyone to join SES, regardless of major!” – Meaghan Connors, current President 2020-2021
