Club Showcase: History Club

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2007

Have a passion for History, but tired of watching reruns of Modern Marvels on the History Channel? Don’t just flip the channel, just turn off the television and join the History Club in DW3250 on Thursday afternoons.

The History Club strives to make history fun.  Such tactics can be bringing in a guest speaker or showing films with historical significance and applying them to today’s world.  Club members’ main goal is to educate their fellow students.

The History Club also supports other clubs on campus during various events like Winter Aide.  The club also enjoys leisure activities like taking field trips.  Trips in the past include a tour of the Oliver mansion and other historic landmarks.

Many club members are encouraged to get involved in internships and research projects.  Some students working on these are getting ready to present their work at an upcoming conference.  The club offers these individuals full support (and maybe therapy) in achieving their goals.

Another item that makes this club unique is the lack of one club president. Sounds chaotic, but the club has four co-chairs, a secretary, and a treasurer to evenly distribute club issues and minimize stress.

Club meetings are held every Thursday at 4pm in the History Lounge up in DW3250.  Everyone and anyone are welcome to join in.

For more information, just pull up a chair this Thursday at 4pm or email
