Invitation from Institute of Religion

I received the note below. It’s aimed at Philosophy Club, so basically any students in philosophy are eligible. If you’re interested in attending, please send me (Huenemann) a note, and I’ll reply! (My email is charlie.huenemann[at]


Professor Huenemann,

[…] I am a representative for the Campus Relations Committee from the Institute of Religion for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We are hosting an interfaith dinner on the 13th of November [5 – 6:30 p.m., in the campus Institute Building] and would love it if you and any other people from your faith group came and joined us! Our goal is to build stronger relationships among the different faith groups on campus so that we all have a stronger support system.

Please RSVP the number of people attending from your group at least a week in advance (by November 6th) so that we can have enough food for everyone and can adjust for any dietary needs people may have.

Philosophy courses, Spring 2020

See the listing in the document attached below!

Two special notes. First, PHIL 4900 (“Ancient Theories of Nature”), taught by Gary McGonagill, counts as meeting our requirement for a course in either ancient or medieval philosophy. So you can meet the requirement by taking the class. Plus, it should be very interesting!
Also, if you are nearing the end of your philosophy degree, do consider taking the capstone course (PHIL 4990). It is your chance to develop your own philosophy, and help your classmates to develop theirs.

Would you like to review other students’ papers?



Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal seeks undergraduate philosophy students to serve as manuscript reviewers.


Stance reviewers hone their writing, researching, and analysis skills by evaluating original papers by some of the world’s most talented undergraduate scholars. Reviewers must have advanced undergraduate experience in philosophy, strengths in writing and editing, and the self-motivation necessary to complete work by given deadlines. A letter of recommendation from a professor who is familiar with the student’s philosophical abilities is required.


Stance has two types of manuscript reviewers. “External Reviewers” evaluate two or three manuscripts, typically in late January or early February. “Assistant Editorial Board Members” serve on our major review teams. Assistant Editorial Board Members consider approximately 20 -30 papers in December. All reviewers receive training material that explains what is expected in the formal review and are guided by an experienced Stance staff member. Reviewers are credited in both the print and electronic versions of the journal.

To apply, please visit and follow the instructions provided on the Call for Reviewers.

Please contact us at with any questions you may have.

Deadline: October 20, 2019
