Welcome to Fall 2022!

Welcome, philosophers, to a new academic year! We are excited about the classes and activities we have planned. Be sure to click on the button on the sidebar if you want to get email notifications of philosophical happenings.

One upcoming event is “Light on the Hill”, a fun evening kick-off to the semester. There will be food trucks and some ceremony involving a cannon and candles. Also, we will be giving away philosophy T-SHIRTS, so be sure to get one!

Light on the Hill is on Tuesday, August 30, at 6:30 pm on the “Block A Lawn” (is that where the “A” thingy is? In the past the ceremony is at the old amphitheater on Old Main Hill. Anyway, the event will be somewhere near Old Main!)

Philosophy dinner!

We will be celebrating our philosophy majors graduating this spring, and inducting members into our honor society. If you are a philosophy major and would like to join in the dinner and celebration, please send a note to charlie.huenemann@usuphilosophy. The dinner will be on Tuesday, May 3rd, at 6:30 pm, at the Beehive Grill. Please respond by midnight Wednesday (4/20) so we have an accurate headcount!

Meet CHaSS alumnus for career advice

Logan native Kevin White earned a BA with a double-major in JCOM and Spanish at USU in 1991. He has had a wide-ranging career with a variety of tech companies in Salt Lake and Utah Counties, and he currently is Director of Global Sales Development at Visa’s office in Lehi. Kevin is very interested in raising awareness of opportunities for our students at his company—we can extrapolate from Kevin’s experience to that of many other ‘Silicon Slopes’ firms.

There will be an information session with Kevin for students, faculty, and staff this Friday, April 8th, 1:00PM at the Alumni House (food and beverages provided). This will be a low-key opportunity to socialize and learn more about career options.
