This organization seeks to glorify God by teaching and encouraging Christian young men and women to boldly and rationally defend the faith while being sensitive to the people we pray for and converse with.

All students are invited to participate. The Philosophy Club is a place to discuss and debate issues in classical and contemporary thinking in an informal setting. It’s a great place to meet new people, find people with common interests and pastimes, do fun activities together, and drink coffee or tea. Join us as we read, explore, and ponder the great arguments and claims in the history of thought and ideas while enjoying Christian fellowship in a mutually supportive environment. The club is open to those who want to pursue truth even as we are pursued by the One who is True!
