The Sociological Student Association held its first meeting in September 2012. All students, including those in Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) with a Sociology specialization, Sociology majors/minors, and any other interested students are welcome to join! SSA works to provide academic discipline in Sociology, promote students into the Sociology program, as well as student and teacher involvement, and advocate community involvement. SSA meets the last Thursday of every month at 5 PM in Bowen 240.

Sociology majors are eligible for membership in the Mississippi Alpha chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta (LINK), the International Sociology Honor Society. Each year, Alpha Kappa Delta brings nationally recognized speakers to MSU, hosts many social and community service outreach projects, as well as acts as a means for sociology majors to interact with faculty and graduate students alike. To be considered for membership, a student must be an officially declared sociology major or demonstrate a serious interest in sociology, must be at least a junior, have at least a 3.30 overall GPA, and must have maintained a 3.00 GPA in sociology courses.
