Clubs and Organizations

  • The Philosophy Department hosts a chapter of the International Honor Society in Philosophy, ΦΣΤ. Founded in 1930 and incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in 1955, the Society now has over 200 chapters throughout the United States and Canada. Students are eligible for active membership if they have completed three semesters or five quarters of college, rank in the upper thirty-five percent of their class, and have completed at least two semester courses or three quarter courses in philosophy with an average grade of B or above. On a more informal basis, the Philosophy Club, made up of students in any major with an interest in philosophy, meets regularly for philosophical discussions, fundraising events and other activities.
