Hello, returning students! We hope you had a good time in the Cave this summer, and are anxious to return to the sunny contemplation of the Good. There will be a couple of Philosophy Club events right away this term, and we wanted to let you know about them and invite you to participate.

The first is our college’s “Light on the Hill” event on Monday, August 27th, beginning at 7:30 p.m. This is a fun ceremony to start the year’s journey, and Philosophy Club will have a table at the event. It would be great to have as many of us there as possible.

The second is USU’s “Day on the Quad” on Wednesday, August 29th. Again, Philosophy will have a table, and we will need to have some people to be at the table.

If you’d like to help out and be involved, please send a note to our Chief Club Guardian, Justin Solum, at justin_solum(at)
