SAA STUDENT DAY
SAA's Second Annual Meeting Student Day!
Saturday, April 26, 2014
Student Day provides an opportunity for students to sample the SAA Annual Meeting and for the SAA community to welcome new students to the experience. High school and undergraduate students who participate will also learn more about archaeology as discipline and as a career.
