Students

Welcome to the Moravian Philosophy Club

The Philosophy Club is an active student organization that meets weekly throughout the fall and spring semesters to discuss, in an intellectually open, respectful and friendly atmosphere, different philosophical issues, from traditional topics and classical philosophers to philosophical topics in pop culture. We also have Movie Nights where we get together to view a movie, have some pizza, and discuss pertinent philosophical issues.

The Philosophy Club meets every Tuesday in the Rec Room in the HUB from 11:45 AM-1:00 PM. Anyone interested in participating in stimulating philosophical discussions is welcome to join us!

Send any questions to club president, Katie Miller, at stkam14@moravian.edu

STUDENT COLLOQUIUM SERIES

Student Colloquium Series is sponsored by the Philosophy Club and provides an opportunity for students to present their own philosophical work on any topic. Its purpose is to foster discussion on philosophical issues among students and create a forum where students can practice oral presentations and public speaking. If you are interested in presenting, contact the club president, Katie Miller, at stkam14@moravian.edu.
