History Club

The History Club is a student organization open to all Bobcats. We seek to provide an enjoyable, stimulating space for all who share an interest in history. We have no requirements for members’ majors, years, or GPAs: any who wish to attend, can!

Our events occur every three weeks and include game nights, presentations, and discussions. If you are interested in attending an event, check our social media pages, look for our posters around campus, or email us. Come join us!

The History Club also collaborates with the Phi Alpha Theta National Honors society.  Check out the PAT website for membership and event information.
