William and Mary

Philosophy Club

The William & Mary Philosophy Club provides an exciting atmosphere in which students have the opportunity to interact with one another and faculty outside the context of a classroom environment. Open to majors and non-majors alike, the Philosophy Club allows students to pursue their philosophical interests wherever they may take them, including areas beyond the scope of classes typically offered at the College. Activities include weekly discussions, lectures by guest philosophers, and a picnic each semester where students challenge faculty in a friendly game of volleyball.  Starting in March 2011, the Philosophy Club also hosts the Annual William & Mary Undergraduate Philosophy Conference, a two-day long event in which students from the College and other universities share papers, receive critical feedback from each other and faculty, and enjoy a keynote lecture by a notable guest philosopher.

The Philosophy Club meets weekly. Interested students are encouraged to e-mail President Thom Mattessich or Vice-President Dan Carlen (contact info below) to be added to the listserv. You should also check out the department's Facebook page for the latest updates on philosophy club events.
