Gingerbread House Competition 2016

The UW Anthropology Department hosted their annual End of the Year Reception on December 16, 2016. The event recognizes the accomplishments of the Department Faculty, Staff, and Graduate and Undergraduate students. This year also marked the debut of a Gingerbread House Building Contest in which members of the Department got to show off their creativity in one last group project before the semester break.
